1952—Celebrating 60 Years—2012
In 2013, Express Ranches, of Yukon, Oklahoma has graciously offered to donate an exceptional bred heifer. EXAR Rita 5681 is an October 2011 daughter and is sired by the $210,000 top-selling bull of his calf crop at Connealy Angus Ranch whose sons and daughters have topped sales across the nation for the past two years, this powerful bred heifer descends from the legendary G A R EXT 614, a female whose progeny have broken virtually every individual sales record in Angus breed history. The donor dam of this heifer was the $60,000 top-selling female of a past Sterling Hunter sale in Michigan and currently serves as a joint embryo donor for Express Ranches, Kiamichi Link Ranch and Pollard Farms in Oklahoma and her dam and grandam have both reigned as the top-valued cow of the Angus breed at some point in their illustrious lifetime. Examined safe to calve August 2, 2013 to EXAR UPSHOT 0562B.
A picture and video of the heifer will be coming soon and will be available at www.angusauxiliary.com; this heifer was hand selected by Jarold Callahan, President at Express Ranches. For more information on this great cow prospect, call (405) 350-0044 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

In 2012, the American Angus Auxiliary celebrated 60 years of preparing young women for the future, educating consumers about the beef industry and supporting junior activities. It is a legacy built by countless volunteers dedicated to the Angus breed. It was indeed appropriate for the organization to this year recognize charter member Bette Votaw, Wellfleet, Neb., as a Distinguished Woman.
