The Colorado Angus Association would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you as you visit our web site.
The Association was formed in 1956 with Dr H. R. Dietmeier as the first president. Since it conception the Association has been supported by some outstanding and dedicated members. With the Centennial Year of the American Angus Association the AAA recognized thirty-nine Historic Angus Herds for having been a continuous producer of Angus cattle for over 25 years in the state of Colorado. Several of these herds are still in production, either by the original owner or through the continued efforts of family members.
The Association is the proud sponsor of the Foundation Female Sale held each year at the National Western Stock Show and has been the host for the National Junior Angus Show in 2000 and 2004.
Colorado is a complex, yet rich and hearty state with a vast assortment of geographically challenging areas in which our Angus cattle thrive. Because of this diverse environment many challenges are present which are not found in other parts of the country, such as brisket disease. This is an area in which great strides are being made by several state Angus breeders to identify sires having low PAP scores.
We are honored to represent this thriving, progressive, diverse and talented group of Angus breeders. Please don't hesitate to contact us, or any of the represented breeders, at any time.
