We’re thrilled with the interest that our members are showing in the Canadian Angus Foundation’s new history book project. Project lead Linda Henderson has heard from many people who are working on their Angus stories and are gathering photos to share. James Bowman’s grandson, who recently entered the Angus breed with his daughter, contacted us to discuss the project. James Bowman was the breed inspector who reviewed the records and pedigrees of all Angus cattle in Canada and provided the data for the first Canadian Aberdeen Angus Herd book published in 1908.
As we work on the new book, the 1985 history book produced by Lloyd Pickard is receiving new interest. The Canadian Angus Association would be grateful for any additional copies that members would like to donate. These books will be auctioned to raise funds to produce the new history book and the Canadian Angus Foundation. Please contact Belinda Wagner (firstname.lastname@example.org or 306-757-6133) or Tina Zakowsky (email@example.com or 1-888-571-3580 ext 3584) to make a donation.
