Locust Level Farms in Vernon Hill ranked as eighth largest in registering the most Angus beef cattle in Virginia with the American Angus Association during fiscal year 2021, which ended Sept. 30, according to Mark McCully, association chief executive officer.
Angus breeders across the nation in 2021 registered 313,138 head of Angus cattle.
“Our association members lead the industry in adopting new technology and breeding the most problem-free cattle for their customers,” McCully said. “Cattlemen across the country continue to find registered Angus seedstock are the most profitable option for their herd.”
The American Angus Association is the nation’s largest beef breed organization, serving nearly 25,000 members across the United States, Canada and several other countries. The association provides programs and services to farmers, ranchers and others who rely on Angus to produce quality genetics for the beef industry and quality beef for consumers.
