Angus Breed Registrations Up Seven Percent Over a Year Ago- Oklahoma Ranch Leads the Way

Wed, 26 Dec 2012 09:53:03 CST

Angus Breed Registrations Up Seven Percent Over a Year Ago- Oklahoma Ranch Leads the Way Cattle herd inventory numbers remain somber this year; down more than 1.9 million from 2011 to 2012, according to recent numbers reported by CattleFax. Breeders are faced with tough decisions and need reliable solutions to keep their operations running.

Despite the downward industry trends, the American Angus Association reports a nearly 7% increase in registrations. A total of 315,007 animals were recorded during fiscal year (FY) 2012, which began Oct. 1, 2011, and ended Sept. 30, 2012.

“No doubt, it’s a challenging time to be involved in the cattle industry,” says Bryce Schumann, Association chief executive officer. “But we are finding that in order to make the beef cattle business better for the future, we need to keep our eyes set on raising reliable, high-quality animals that produce beef to meet consumer demands.”

And in many instances, that goal starts with the Angus breed. In fiscal year 2012, 625 Association members, representing 41 different states, registered 100 or more head of Angus cattle. The top 10 states for registrations were, in order: Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, North Dakota, Missouri, Idaho and Wyoming.

Top Angus Breeders

The Association also announced its FY 2012 members who registered 100 or more animals. The top 10 breeders for registrations were, in order:

· Express Angus Ranches, Yukon, Okla.
· Sitz Angus Farm, Harrison, Mont.
· Gardiner Angus Ranch Inc., Ashland, Kan.
· Connealy Angus Ranch, Whitman, Neb.
· Vermilion Ranch, Billings, Mont.
· Thomas Angus Ranch, Baker City, Ore.
· 44 Farms, Cameron, Texas
· Riverbend Ranch, Idaho Falls, Idaho
· Schaffs Angus Valley, Saint Anthony, N.D.
· Stevenson Diamond, Dot Hobson, Mont.
