       President’s Message
Dear Fellow Cattlemen

     It is both an honor and pleasure to be writing this letter as president of the
Maryland Angus Association.

     It’s an honor to be in the state of Maryland. Our family moved to Maryland 17
years ago, and I was immediately immersed in Maryland’s great Angus heritage. In
2006, the Maryland Angus Association celebrated its 75th anniversary and we were
again reminded of our rich Angus heritage. While many of the old historic herds no
longer exist, their legacy continues through the current members. As you review our
membership list, you will find families who have bred Angus cattle for multiple gen-
erations, many with direct or indirect ties to the historic Angus herds. Many of our
members have gone on to hold national leadership positions in both the Junior and
American Angus associations.

     It’s been a pleasure working with Maryland Angus Breeders. Their commitment
to producing high quality Angus cattle is second only to their commitment to fami-
ly and the Junior Angus members. One only has to attend a national or regional Jr.
Angus event to see evidence of the quality of the young people and the cattle they
exhibit that come from Maryland Angus breeders. Though Maryland is a small state
made up of small breeders, the MD Juniors bring home more than their share of
championship banners and awards.

     If you’re a new or potential member, don’t be intimidated. This is a great group
of people that will go out of their way to help you get started and make you feel wel-
come. There are opportunities within the Maryland Angus Association to select and
purchase your first Angus heifer, to exhibit the results of your breeding program and
tools to use for marketing your Angus cattle. If you have kids, the Maryland Jr.
Angus Association is a first class organization for developing leadership and citizen-
ship skills. As we saw from the junior skits at our winter social, it’s not just about
showing cattle.

    Finally, I’d like to personally thank Donna Full for her time and effort as chair-
man of the directory committee. The committee has done a great job and I’m sure
you will appreciate their efforts as you review our 2008/2009 directory.

President, Maryland Angus Association

    Maryland Angus Association

          he Maryland Angus Association was organized in 1930 and 1931 when
T         there were 14 known Angus herds in the state.
  Maryland was a pioneer Angus state in the east. The first Angus were brought
to the Old Line State in 1880, just ten years after the Aberdeen-Angus breed was
introduced to the U.S. at Victoria, Kans., by W. H. Whitridge of Baltimore, Md.
On April 10th, 1883, a heifer calf was dropped on the property of Mr. Whitridge.
This was the first Angus calf recorded bred and born on Maryland soil.
  The most important association sponsored event in the early years of the
Maryland Angus Association, was the Maryland Angus Breeders Shows. The first
official one of these was held at the Harford Hunt Club in 1933 with 20 animals
  Over the years since then, the Breeders Shows have been discontinued and
revived depending on the enthusiasm of the membership. Since 1974, when 52
head were shown, the Maryland Angus Breeders Show has been an annual event
held in late August in conjunction with the Montgomery County Fair at
Gaithersburg, Md.
  In 1983, a Preview Show was also held as a one day event at the Howard
County Fairgrounds in West Friendship, Md. It was dropped in 1989 in favor of
the Breeders Show at Montgomery County Fair.
  The Spring Grass Sales were organized and held for a number of years and
spring sales are held today, mainly as cow/calf sales.
  The Fall Quality Show and Sale was established and for many years was a prime
source for club steers and heifers and replacement heifers. In the late seventies,
the Show portion was dropped. After the fall sales were dropped in 1986, a
Maryland Steer Futurity was established and held at the Frederick Fairgrounds in
Frederick, Md., Featuring Maryland bred steers and later, heifers. Proceeds from
a nomination fee were held in an account and paid as special premiums to sale
animals shown at specified county, state, regional and national shows to encour-
age young people to show registered Angus.
   Some of the great Angus herds were developed in Maryland, including
Cremona Farms at Mechanicsville. Founded by General Davidson. Cremona
Farms is the only herd in Maryland to breed
two grand champion bulls at the great
International Livestock Show in Chicago,
Glencarnock Eric of Cremona and
Wintonier 4th.
  Many other herds went on to write Angus
history including: Ancor Farm at Upperco;
Andelot Stock Farms at Worton; Arrowhead
Farms at Thurmont and Woodsboro;                                   1940
                                                  Glencarnock Eric of Cremona 529001
Bennett’s Point Farm at Queenstown;                      Calved August 25, 1937
Blakeford Farm at Queenstown; Bryan’s Sire, Glencarnock Earl Eric 16 M 502865
                                                     Dam, Fannie Bess of Ada 45132
Manor at Salisbury; Canton Farm at St.                  Breeder, Cremona Farm,
Michaels; Cold Saturday Farm at Finksburg;              Mechanicsville, Maryland
                                                        Exhibitor, Cremona Farm,
Cremona Farm at Mechanicsville; El-Kay                  Mechanicsville, Maryland
Farm at Frederick; Fox Hill Farm at Fallston;
Glen Angus at Belair; Linden Manor at Cecilton; Mainbrace Farm at
Queenstown; Manor Farm at Riderwood; Merkle-Patuxent Farm at Namor;
Monocacy at Frederick; Mt. Prospect Farm at Gaithersburg; Tyrconnel Farm at
Knoxville; Wickwire Farm at Earleville; Wilmae Farm at Monkton; Wye Angus
at Queenstown; and Wye River Angus at Queenstown.
    It should be noted also that Mar Lee Farm at Woodsboro, bred a bull named
                           Broadway, that was the only animal to win the
                           Supreme Championship at the American Angus
                           Futurity in Louisville, two years in a row.
                           Maryland Angus breeders have always been active on
                           the national level. Alan McGregor and Lawrason Sayre
                           were presidents of the American Angus Association;
                           Mrs. H. H. Hackney, Mrs. Russell West, and Dessie
                           Moxley were all president of the American Angus
                           Auxiliary; Bill Powell and Donald Trimmer were
                           Fieldmen for the American Angus Association;
                           Monica Feeser works in the junior activities depart-
                           ment of the American Angus Association; Nancy Ann
                           Sayre was the editor of the Angus Journal for three
years; Susie Holston and Cortney Hill-Dukehart served as Miss American
Angus; Chad Hahn won the National Angus Showmanship Contest in 2005.
Just to name a few.
   The Maryland Angus Womens Club was organized in 1956-57 and the
Maryland Junior Angus Association was organized in 1971.
   When Dr. Emmett Full was president in 1978, he initiated the Maryland
Angus Breeder Award and the Maryland Angus Family Award to recognize those
who made a contribution to the breed and to Maryland Angus. The Association
has presented these two awards, each year since.
   In 1949, Chilly Peery was hired as the first fulltime fieldman for the associa-
tion and three years later he had helped to increase the association’s coffers from
$1,700 to $10,000 and had sold $1,000,000 worth of cattle for the association.
   Peery later became editor/owner of Angus Topics magazine, the official publi-
cation for Maryland and a number of other eastern states.
   Mrs. H. H. Hackney of Cold Saturday Farm in Finksburg, was the first woman
president of the Maryland Angus Association, Judy Considine of Black Wave
Angus in Middletown, was the second woman president, and Caryl Velisek of
Purple Blend Angus, was the third woman to hold the office.
   In 1980, the Maryland
Angus Association celebrated
its 50th anniversary with a din-
ner and program at Watkins
Restaurant      in    Frederick.
Longtime Maryland Angus
breeder, Tom Curtis, was the
master of ceremonies, and spe-
cial guests included General
Davidson of Cremona Farms,
Joe Gardner of Ancor Farm, Albert Tabler of Gwen Al Farm, Howard Anderson
of Wimberly Farm, and Chilly Peery.
   The Maryland Angus Association publishes a directory every two to three years
and a newsletter every other month or as deemed necessary by the Board of
   The Maryland Angus Association was incorporated in 1951 with the following
statement of purpose:
   “To promote the best interest of the Aberdeen-Angus breed of cattle by means
of sales, shows, meetings, publications, and in such other ways as will, in the
judgment of the Corporation, help in the establishment of new herds and the
maintenance and improvement of present herds of Aberdeen-Angus Cattle.
   “The Corporation shall be a non-profit Corporation and neither the income
nor the principal of the Corporation’s funds may be used to insure the benefit of
any private member nor shall the income or principal of the Corporation be use
in an attempt to influence legislation by propaganda or otherwise.”
   Association membership fluctuates around the 100 to 150 mark.

               Association History
   The Maryland Angus Association was organized in 1930 and 1931 when
there were fourteen known Angus herds in the state.
  Herds like Andelot, Cremona and Wickwire helped write early Angus his-
tory, not only in Maryland but nationally, as well, along with many other
herds too numerous to mention here.
  The most important Association sponsored events in the early years were
the Maryland Breeders Shows. The first official show was held at the
Harford Hunt Club in 1933 where 20 animals were exhibited. Over the
years the Breeders Shows were discontinued, then revived, depending on the
enthusiasm of the membership.
  The most recent revival was in 1974 when 52 head were shown at
Gaithersburg in conjunction with Montgomery County Fair in August. In
1983, a Preview Show was also held at the Howard County Fairgrounds in
West Friendship, as a one day event. It was so well received, the member-
ship decided to hold a one day Breeders Show at Howard County
Fairgrounds and to drop the show at Gaithersburg. In 1989 (because of
difficulty raising prize monies) the Breeders Show was moved back to the
Montgomery County Fair.
  The Annual Fall Quality Show and Sale was established and became a
prime source for foundation Angus cattle. A number of years ago, the
“show” portion was dropped.
  The spring “Grass Sales” were organized and served as a source of good
quality unfitted Angus. Spring cow-calf sales continue today.
  In 1986, a Maryland Steer Futurity Sale was established and held at the
Frederick Fairgrounds. Featuring Maryland-bred steers, and later heifers,
proceeds from a nomination fee is held in an account and pays special pre-
miums to sale animals shown at specified county fairs, state, regional and
national shows, to encourage young people to show registered Angus.
  The Association was incorporated as the Maryland Angus Association in
1951, with the following statement of purpose:
  To promote the best interest of the Aberdeen-Angus breed of cattle by means of
sales, shows, meeting, publications and in such other ways as will in the judge-
ment of the Corporation, help in the establishment of new herds and the main-
tenance and improvement of present herds of Aberdeen-Angus cattle.
  The Corporation shall be a nonprofit corporation and neither the income nor
the principal of the Corporation’s funds may be used to insure the benefit of any
private member nor shall the income or principle of the Corporation be used in
an attempt to influence legislation by propaganda or otherwise.
   In 1971, the Association helped organize a Maryland Junior Angus
Association and has put stronger and stronger emphasis on aiding our
Junior programs with increased monetary contributions, encouragement of
and help with activities. We have been rewarded with a strong and active
group of young Angus enthusiasts who have been selected to host three
regional junior Angus shows to date.
   The Maryland Angus Women’s Club was organized in 1957 and has
always been active in state and local Angus events and programs. Their par-
ticipation in Association and Junior events has helped strengthen the
Association considerably.
   The first Annual Dinner Social was held in 1990 at the Lisbon Firehall.
This is time when the members take time out from the Holiday rush and
get together to reminisce over the year and spread good cheer. The Angus
Breeder and Angus Family awards are presented at this time and the selec-
tion of the new Angus Queen and Princess is announced.
   The annual Angus Business meeting (formally held in February) is now
held in March in conjunction with the Maryland Cattlemen’s Convention
and Trade Show at Hagerstown. At this meeting the Committees report
and a new Board of Directors are elected.
   Since 1968, the Association has published this directory of membership
every one to four years as deemed necessary by the membership.
   The dedication of our older members, the constant support of our
Women’s Club, the enthusiasm of our juniors and new members, has helped
to weld our Association into a real Angus fellowship dedicated, not only to
the promotion of our great breed of cattle, but also to promotion of an
atmosphere of friendliness, cooperation and social exchange.

      Sponsored Services & Events
Annual Membership Meetings
The first major event each year is the Annual Membership Meeting. These meet-
ings are normally held during March, in conjunction with the Maryland
Cattlemen’s Convention and Trade Show in Hagerstown, MD. This is the meeting
during which new Directors are elected and new Presidents and Vice-Presidents are
selected. In addition to being a very enjoyable social event, these meetings are also
important educational events. These meetings provide members with an opportu-
nity to interact with fellow breeders (all breeds), listen to guest speakers discuss cur-
rent management and cattle herd development issues, and to impact the direction
in which the Maryland Angus Association is moving.

Field Days
Field days are also very significant social and educational events. We have one field
day each year at one of our fellow Angus breeders farms. These events give the
members an opportunity to see other breeder’s cattle herds and to see, first hand,
how their herds are managed. Normally held during July or August, field days typi-
cally include a social, a picnic buffet, a variety of guest speakers and a farm tour.

Breed Shows
The Association sponsors two registered Angus breed shows each year. The first is
the Junior Preview Show which is usually held at the Howard County Fairgrounds
during June. The second is the Maryland Breeders Show which is normally held
during late August in conjunction with the Montgomery County Fair. These shows
give members an opportunity to highlight their breeding program or, if they chose
not to show, to see the breeding program of other Angus breeders.

Consignment Sales
At present, the Association sponsors two consignment sales each year. One is the
Fall Steer and Heifer Futurity Sale which includes club steers and heifers that are
sold to 4-H, FFA and Junior exhibitors. The second sale is the Maryland Angus
Breeders Sale which includes cow/calf pairs, AI bred cows and Al bred heifers. The
fees for management of these sales are determined by sale costs which are kept to a
minimum. All Regular members of the Association are automatically entitled to
nominate cattle to either of these two sales.

Awards Banquet
The final event each year is the Awards Banquet. Held on the first Saturday of
December, awards are presented to the Premier Exhibitor and the Premier Breeder
from the Breeders Show. The Angus Family of the Year and The Angus Breeder of
the Year are also recognized. The winners in the Steer and Heifer Futurity shows
are announced and the Maryland Angus Queen and Princess are crowned.

Junior Programs
The Junior Association sponsors a statewide Junior Preview Show which is both an
educational and social event. The Junior Showmen are selected at this event to rep-
resent Maryland at the National Junior Angus Show. The Association awards a tro-
phy to the junior exhibiting the Champion Angus Steer at the various shows and
fairs throughout the state. Special trophies are presented at the Maryland State Fair
and the Eastern National Livestock Show at Timonium, MD.

Futurity Funds
As a special incentive to the young people in Maryland and surrounding states, the
Association maintains a fund to pay cash awards to the 4-H, FFA and Junior mem-
bers who buy calves in the Steer and Heifer Futurity Sale. The Association pays
cash awards to all first and second place Angus Class winners, to all champion and

                   Futurity Program
The Maryland Angus Association has initiated a program to promote the breeding;
sales and showing of Maryland bred angus cattle. The Futurity Program is funded
through donations, fundraisers and nomination fees. The program rewards
Maryland Angus Junior members that purchase Maryland bred angus cattle by pro-
viding a cash payout for Futurity nominated animals exhibited at certain defined
shows. The Futurity rewards are based on the individual placing at the show. It
was the intent of the program to encourage and support the Maryland Junior
Angus members in the purchase and exhibition of angus cattle bred by the mem-
bers of the Maryland Angus Association.

Eligible animals must be registered purebred Angus and must list a Maryland
Angus Association member as the breeder on the AAA registration. The animal
must be sold to a second party that is a current member in good standing of the
Maryland Angus Junior Association. Junior bred and owned animals are not eligi-
ble. Any animal that meets the age requirements to show is eligible in the nomi-
nating year.

The nomination requires the submission of the Futurity Nomination Form and a
copy of the registration of the animal (or its Dam if the registration is in process)
with the nomination fee. The nomination fee is $50.00 per animal. The animal
must ne nominated prior to February 15th for steers and May 15th for heifers.
Note: for animals exhibiting at the MAJAC show, the nominations must be in
before the start of the show. The purchaser (owner) can submit the nomination as
long as all eligibility requirements are met. Retroactive nominations and earnings
are not permitted.

Maryland Angus Women's Club

          When the chairman of this directory asked me to revise the
Maryland Angus Women’s Club page, I decided to write some excerpts from
a talk I gave at a Board meeting this summer because it emphasizes what the
Women’s Club is all about and how much our young people mean to both
the Women’s Club and the Maryland Angus Association.
          The Maryland Angus Women’s Club was one of the first Angus
auxiliaries in the country. It preceded the American Angus Auxiliary by one
or two years having been organized in 1956-57.
          When I first came to Maryland in about 1971, we had a very large,
very active group of women, mainly because we had a very large, active
group of young people that were showing Angus steers and heifers. We did-
n’t have a junior program in the state and no regional or national junior
Angus shows at the time.
          The Maryland Junior Angus Association was, with help from the
Maryland Angus Association and the Maryland Angus Women, organized
in 1971 and the junior program was on it’s way, including the Junior
Preview Show.
          Some time after that, the Maryland Angus Association Board of
Directors asked the Women’s Club to pick an Angus Queen to pass out rib-
bons at shows and fairs and represent us at our other events and the Queen
Contest was born.
          About the time my children began to outgrow the Junior Angus
Association, many others who had been participating for so long saw the
same thing happen. Women’s Club members dropped out as their children
did and we were left with a handful of members to do the job.
          For a few years there was a decrease in Junior, Women’s Club AND
Maryland Angus Association memberships which only shows how impor-
tant our young people are, not only to our organizations, but to our breed.
          For the past several years we have seen memberships grow and pro-
grams expand. With this new crop of youngsters, we have children of some
of the children that were part of the early years of the Maryland Junior
Angus Association. I think that speaks well of what we, as Angus breeders,
and the 4-H and FFA Programs in our state have been doing. Obviously
we have something these parents found as members, that they want their
children to be a part of. I think we can be proud.
          Our fundraising activities have included serving meals at sales and

other events, a Ways and Means booth at shows and sales, the sale of cheese
and chances on our Wheelbarrow of Gourmet Cheer, and have provided
money for more than 100 scholarships over the years. We have had
National Scholarship winners, and for a state small in size with compara-
tively few cattle and fulltime cattle people, we’ve graduated a disproportion-
ately large number of juniors into livestock field and related industries. We
have a former Miss American Angus, a former editor of the Angus Journal,
fieldman, veterinarians, a lobbyist with the National Cattlemen’s Beef
Association, and many others working in our industry today.
         It is also interesting to note our junior advisors over the past few
years, the ones who worked so hard to make the 1995 Eastern Regional
Angus Show in Timonium such a success, were some of the juniors who
made the 1981 Eastern Regional at Gaithersburg such a great event.
          It’s difficult to measure the success of the Maryland Angus Women’s
Club without including the success of our Juniors. In the final analysis,
that is what we are all about.

   1974 marked the year of the 1st junior field day with a preview show. This
event turned to the State Preview show held in June and included steers,
heifers, judging contest and showmanship delegates were selected for NJAS.
The Preview show is still held in early June and includes a division for
Cow/Calf, Bred & Owned Heifer, Bred & Owned Bull, Bred & Owned
Steer, Owned Heifer and Owned Steer. Morning activities have included
judging, skillathon, team sales, barnyard games and quiz bowl. Showmanship
is held for junior, intermediate and senior as well as the selection of two NJAS
showmanship delegates. In the late 90’s photography was added and since
poster, graphic arts and creative writing. Group photos are taken and a brief
meeting is held primarily to discuss the upcoming regional and national show.
The MJAA was instrumental in organizing the Northeastern Junior Angus
Association and in 1980 hosted the 1st Northeastern Junior Preview Show in
Timonium at the State Fairgrounds. The show was titled “The Star Spangled
Classic”. This event continued for a few years but soon the Atlantic National
Show came along having a first class junior show and participation for the
juniors in the region gravitate to Timonium on Memorial weekend each year.
   President Pam Stabler along with advisors Caryl Velisek and Dessie Moxley
lead the juniors through hosting the 1982 Eastern Regional Junior Angus
Heifer Show at Montgomery County Fairgrounds. The Maryland Juniors and
families again hosted the “Maryland With Pride in 1995” Eastern Regional
Angus Show in Timonium under the direction of Melissa Harrison and advi-
sors Doug and Pam Velisek and Doug and Donna Full. Most recently the
“Star Spangled Angus” 2002 Eastern Regional was held in Timonium at the
Maryland State Fairgrounds with Cortney Hill-Dukehart and Curtis Bryant
as junior co-chairs and Frank & Julie Feeser as adult advisor chairs. These
events were highly successful and motivated the junior and adult membership
to work together to highlight the small state of Maryland and create lasting,
positive memories for all whom participated.
   Over the years, advisors to the juniors have been dedicated adults, helping
young Angus enthusiasts excel. Those volunteers known to this volunteer are
as follows: Gloria Clower, Roy Neal, Caryl Velisek, Dessie Moxley, Daryl
Johnson, Dale Hough, Doug & Pam Velisek, Doug & Donna Full, Melissa
Schulze, Kelly O’Boyle, Frank & Julie Feeser. Current advisors are Tim &
Becky Clarke, Doug & Donna Full, Todd & Carolyn Howard, Patty &
Chester Kerns, Doug & Pam Velisek and Judy Wolfrey. Each have taken
responsibilities of the club to continue its’ success and growth.
   Early as the 70’s, Maryland Juniors would trek to regional and national
shows as a group. While Maryland adult breeders forged a path in America’s
Angus heritage, Maryland Juniors have gained recognition across the country
over the last 30 years being on the top end of many state group classes, team
sales, computer cow/calf game, speech, photography, graphic design, quiz
bowl, herdsmanship and scrapbook competitions. Showmanship representa-
tives have traveled to NJAS having several in the top finalists and even a win-
ner. Many scholarships have been won both regionally and nationally. The
1st Miss American Angus hailed from Maryland and since had another. Five
have been selected to the National Junior Angus Board. On the show ring side
high honors have been claimed in all divisions and even show heifer of the
year. Maryland has been a small state in size and numbers but mighty in qual-
ity of cattle and dedication and enthusiasm of juniors.
   The families of the Maryland Junior Angus Association, the Maryland
Angus Association and the Maryland Angus Women have served the juniors
over the years having breeder steer and heifer sales, donating funds, support-
ing fundraising efforts, presenting scholarships, supporting physical and emo-
tional needs. In order for this small state to achieve so much over the years
and work as a team has taken strong dedicated advisors and leaders. As you
can see we have many from that original charter club who are actively
involved in the success of the MJAA. It takes generational support in a small
state like ours and we do appreciate you! The MJAA express their gratitude
for the many who have contributed so much of their time, talent, energy and
money over the years.

Favorite Memories
 “The memories are too great to list, but certainly oversleeping for the
 1990 board meeting in Nebraska. When I arrived, I gave an ‘off the
 cuff ’ committee report as in my haste I left my notes behind. We
 eventually did get the female sold in Denver and we did quite well as
 I recall.”
         MARK MOXLEY 1988-1990 Foundation Director

 “My favorite NJAA moments are of those in the show ring helping
 younger members with their projects and the camaraderie among
 Board members.”
  MONICA FEESER JORDAN 1995-1997 Foundation Director

      DIANA COVELL 1997-1999 Foundation Director

 “As I was talking to one child who probably wasn't even old enough
 to show yet, I realized I recognized the look in her eyes. It was exact-
 ly the same one I had undoubtedly had in mine at the same age -
 admiration and trust and just a shade of hero worship. In her eyes I
 could do no wrong. I was struck with the incredible responsibility of
 being a role model and hero. Since that time I have carried this with
 me; ‘our lives are not our own’. We touch the people around us and
 change their lives, whether for good or for bad, the choice is ours.”
         AMY WOLFREY 2002-2004 Leadership Director

 “My most memorable experience was actually running for the board.
 While on the board, there is always something to be done and it is
 sometimes hard to find a moment just to visit. When running for the
 board, just meeting the juniors was my first priority and most mem-
 orable. I also enjoyed the challenge of the candidate delegate’s dinner.
 Not only was giving my speech exciting, but having to think and
 answer questions on my feet, is a memory I will never forget. Being
 on the NJAA Board is an experience of a lifetime and I have enjoyed
 every minute. Just helping youth and getting to know so many peo-
 ple is an experience that I will cherish in my life forever.”

           2007 Family of the Year
             The Dave Brauning Family
T    he Dave Brauning Family is a very deserving
     recipient of the 2007 Family of the Year
Award, and in many people’s eyes, long overdue.
This Finksburg, Maryland Family has long been
active in our Association, in which Dave Sr. served
as our President from 1993-1994. Dave Jr. is cur-
rently serving on our Board of Directors and helps
out on several committees. In July of 2007, the
Braunings hosted a very informative and entertain-
ing Field Day at their farm. A great time was had
by all who attended. Again, thanks for a great day!

  Dave Jr. and his wife, Denise, have three children who are now active in our Junior Association.
Savannah is well on her way to having a great show record. The family now participates in shows
all over the country. But, their biggest attribute is their willingness to help others achieve!
Congratulations on winning this award!

          2007 Breeder of the Year
                        The Powell Family
C   ongratulations to Bill and Gail Powell, at
    Arrowhead Farms in Thurmont, Md., the
2007 Maryland Angus Breeders. Bill and Gail are
well known to Angus breeders throughout
Maryland and the entire country.

   Arrowhead Farms was founded by Bill's dad in
1940 and rose to national prominence in the years
that followed. Bill and Gail have been the guiding
force at Arrowhead for many years now.

  Arrowhead Farm cattle were shown extensively in
the fifties, sixties and seventies and, after his retirement as a Regional Manager with the American
Angus Association, a position he held for 23 years, Bill joined Gail full time on the farm.
Cattle from the Arrowhead herd, which now consists of 40 brood cows, have done well for peo-
ple all over the country and the name Arrowhead has attracted many repeat customers over the
years and is well respected.

  The Powells rely on a sound A.I. program and performance records and participate in other
programs of the American Angus Association and the Maryland Angus Association.

                       Certified Angus
                       Beef Program
    A division of the American Angus Association, the Certified Angus Beef
(CAB) Program was established in 1978 to increase demand for registered Angus
seedstock through the promotion of a consistent, high quality, specification-based
brand of beef.

The Certification Process
    Employees at licensed processing plants are approved and monitored by the
USDA to identify predominantly solid black cattle (at least 51 percent of each
animal’s hair coat is black). This means purebred Angus cattle as well as cattle
exhibiting Angus-type characteristics are eligible for the Program. Although most of
the “identified” cattle are polled, horned cattle are also accepted.
  When the Angus-type cattle are identified, their carcasses are marked with an “A”
stamp to maintain identity. Only steer and heifer carcasses are then evaluated by a
USDA Grader, an impartial third-party, based on the following criteria:
         1. Modest or higher degree marbling
         2. “A” maturity range
         3. USDA Yield Grade 3.9 or leaner
         4. Medium or fine marbling texture
         5. Beef muscling characteristics of moderately thick or thicker
         6. No hump on the neck exceeding two inches in height
         7. No evidence of internal hemorrhages in the ribeye muscle
         8. Free of dark cutting characteristics

   Only 1 out of 6 carcasses evaluated meets all eight of these rigid grading specifica-
tions and is marketed using the CERTIFIED ANGUS BEEF marks.     TM

Product Distribution
    The Program does not own the cattle or beef product. It licenses packers to
identify Angus-type cattle for USDA evaluation and certification. Licensed fabrica-
tors then prepare CERTIFIED ANGUS BEEF product for worldwide distribution.
Only Program licensees, including distributors, restaurants and retail stores, may use
the CERTIFIED ANGUS BEEF marks to promote the product. For a list of

licensed restaurants and retailers near you, call the CAB Program at (800) 225-2333.
   The Program’s focus on quality and integrity ensures that CERTIFIED ANGUS          TM

BEEF product remains world-renowned for its exceptional tenderness, juiciness and
                  Clearly a Matter of Taste                             ®

Sire Evaluation Program
    The American Angus Association boasts
the most comprehensive sire evaluation program in the industry. The CAB
Program’s supply development division partners with the Association, Angus breed-
ers, commercial producers and feeders to test sires for genetic contributions to prog-
eny carcass merit. Carcass Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) for marbling, car-
cass weight, ribeye area, fat thickness and percent retail product result and serve as
valuable tools for making breeding decisions.
          Sire Donor - A seedstock producer with a sire to be evaluated for progeny
carcass merit should provide the name and registration number of the potential test
sire to the CAB Program.
          Cooperating Herd - A commercial producer who can artificially inseminate
120+ cows or heifers annually can serve as a cooperating herd. Cattle in a cooper-
ating herd will be randomly mated to a test sire or a reference sire in equal num-
bers. Ideally, a contemporary group consists of 20+ male progeny from the test sire
and a combined total of 20+ progeny from the reference sires.
          Carcass Data Collection - Accurate information on carcass quality and
cutability helps Angus producers market cattle effectively and make sound breeding
and management decisions. The Carcass Data Collection & Analysis Service pro-
vides Sire evaluation Program participants the opportunity to obtain complete indi-
vidual and / or group carcass data at minimal cost.

Value Discovery Program
    This retained ownership program is sponsored for producers to discover where
their cattle fit on the scale for carcass value. Producers may consign a minimum of
five steers for feeding at a commercial feedlot. (National Junior Angus Association
members may enter three or four steers. A state junior entry consists of six to eight
steers.) Feedlot and carcass data are collected on the steers, and a comprehensive
data and cost analysis is performed. Health information is also included in the final

                                                   For more information, contact:
