Building a Better Future with “TEAM WORK”
The Great Meadows Angus Association was started in 1980. Local Angus producers had a vision of coming together and improving the Angus industry. This has proven to be the foundation that we build upon and grow successfully from today.
The members strive to promote the Angus breed to the end consumer and networking of ideas to increase farm profits. As an organization, we strive to support and educate young people in the cattle industry. We have family oriented quarterly meetings on the second Thursday of January, April, July, and October with potluck suppers and informative speakers. Many other activities include summer picnics, holiday dinners and field days.
Our association's theme is “Team Work” and our goal is to work together with all Angus and commercial beef producers to meet the needs of the rapidly changing beef industry. Teams that work together can out-perform groups that are merely together working. The word team means, “A tightly organized group of people sharing mutual trust, loyalty and conviction, who act together with confidence and determination in order to achieve a particular purpose.” This is how we describe Great Meadows Angus Association. We are seeing new opportunities for progressive beef producers as we work together to grow within the beef cattle industry in this state.
According to Dean Scott Smith, University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, “He is striving to get Kentucky in the top 5 in the next few years.” Angus and other beef cattle producers alike have an excellent potential for expanding their beef cattle enterprises because of the states abundance of forages which make up a large part of the beef animal’s diet. As we look at the changes within the state, the beef industry stands at the threshold in ways of analyzing the performance and profitability of the cattle we produce. And as members of this association, we can help the state fulfill that goal.
