Angus Cow Enrollment

About the Angus Cow Enrollment program:

The Canadian Angus Association’s new, voluntary fee schedule program, the Angus Cow Enrollment (ACE) program is available as of January 1, 2018

The ACE program will give breeders the option to pay a fee of $65/cow enrolled to gain access to a full suite of member services provided at no extra cost for the year of enrollment.

The program allows breeders to accurately budget for each year of approved CAA services at only $65 per active cow per year. The full list of services provided under the program is detailed HERE. The current CAA fee schedule is still available to all members; ACE is an alternative fee program available to interested members.

A member’s ACE enrollment fee is based on the number of active cows on their fall inventory. If a breeder does not wish to enroll an animal in the ACE program, they must complete the Female Exposure & Disposal Worksheet to indicate all cows that are no longer active.

With flexible billing options that allow breeders to pay for ACE enrollment in one lump sum or split into three payments throughout the year (April, July & October 1), the ACE program is poised to simplify the breeder experience so members can spend less time paying bills and more time doing what matters to them.  

In order to enroll in the program, interested members must complete their ACE Enrollment Postcard and their Female Exposure & Disposal Worksheet which will be sent out in the fall.
