The programs and services of the association and its entities -- Angus Genetics Inc., Angus Productions Inc., Certified Angus Beef LLC and the Angus Foundation -- help members to advance the beef cattle business by selecting the best animals for their herds and marketing quality genetics for the beef cattle industry and quality beef for consumers.
