Dustin Wiese, a member of the American Angus Association, is one of 301 Angus breeders who have been elected by fellow members in their state to serve as a representative at the annual meeting.
PEQUOT LAKES — Dustin Wiese, Pequot Lakes, was elected as a delegate to the 137th American Angus Association Convention of Delegates Nov. 9 at the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, Missouri.
Wiese, a member of the American Angus Association with headquarters in St. Joseph, Missouri, is one of 301 Angus breeders elected by fellow members in their state to serve as a representative at the annual meeting, Mark McCully, CEO of the American Angus Association, reported in a news release.
Representing the United States and Canada, the delegates will participate in the business meeting and elect new officers and five directors to the American Angus Association Board.
This year’s event was modified from the traditional Angus convention format. Considering the current gathering restrictions created by COVID-19, modifications were necessary to balance the health of attendees and the need to conduct the association’s business.
The annual meeting will provide a modified line up of high quality education, without compromising the safety and security of those in attendance, organizers reported. Socially-distanced educational sessions and an awards dinner and fundraiser will be hosted along with industry updates from thought-leaders and association staff.
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. For more information about Angus cattle, visit www.ANGUS.org .
