Each year, Certified Angus Beef LLC (CAB) looks for a seedstock and a commercial cattle operation to honor for their exemplary role in using superior Angus genetics to build better beef.
“These Commitment to Excellence Award winners do it right, and show the way for others,” says Larry Corah, CAB vice president. Everyone learns from good examples, and that’s why the company recognizes those who leave no stone unturned as they move toward the ideal, from genetics to coordinated management and marketing.
Eligible candidates must have a record of measuring genetic and management criteria, and then acting to better drive the supply of Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) brand product. There are extra points for being directly involved with CAB in its various programs and licensed feedlots over the years.
“We’re encouraging cattlemen to nominate those they work with, their genetic suppliers or bull-buying customers,” Corah says.
Nominations, due May 1, should include details that make the farm or ranch a good award candidate, including the ability of their cattle to hit the CAB and CAB Prime targets. Please include name and contact information, type and size of operation, number of years feeding or working with customers on postweaning data, and any linkage to other CAB projects.
Winners will be contacted by June 1. CAB will produce features stories about the individuals, who will receive an expense-paid trip to the company’s Annual Conference in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., Sept. 19 to 21.
