Helberg Farms in Lohn is a new member of the American Angus Association, reported Dick Spader, executive vice president of the national organization with headquarters in St. Joseph, Missouri. The American Angus Association, with more than 35,000 active adult and junior members, is the largest beef cattle registry association in the world. Its computerized records include detailed information on over 13 million registered Angus. The Association records ancestral information and keeps records of production on individual animals for its members. These permanent records help members select and mate the best animals in their herds to produce high quality, efficient breeding cattle which are then recorded with the American Angus Association. Most of these registered Angus are used by the U.S. farmers and ranchers who raise high quality beef for U.S. consumption.
