Oakley ranch honored by American Angus Association

River Ranch Angus, Oakley, Utah, has been recognized nationally by the American Angus Association for having registered Angus cow included in the association’s 2006 Pathfinder Report.

Only 2,187 of the more than 34,000 American Angus Association members are represented in this year’s report, according to John Crouch, executive vice president of the association that is headquartered in Saint Joseph, Missouri.

The Pathfinder Program identifies superior Angus cows based upon recorded performance traits that are economically important to efficient beef production. These traits include early and regular calving and heavy weaning weights, reports Bill Bowman, association director of performance program. More than 1,495,360 eligible dams were examined to determine Pathfinder status. All registered Angus cows that meet the strict Pathfinder standards are listed alongside their owners in the Pathfinder Report published annually.

The 2006 Pathfinder Report lists over 9,000 individual cows and 258 Pathfinder sires. It is published in the April issue of the Angus Journal and copies are available from the Association. The reports can also be found on the Web site at

State Farm agent advises making IRA contributions

An IRA contribution of the 2005 maximum of $4,000 prior to April 17 could reduce taxable income, according to State Farm agent Bryan Daybell. If an individual turned 50 or older by the end of 2005, they can add a $5000 catch-ip contribution to potentially reduce the tax burden even more, he says. Those who already have a traditional IRA, should plan to make a contribution prior to the April 17 deadline. Those who don’t have an IRA should talk to a financial professional as soon as possible to start one, Daybell explained. For those that don’t qualify for a traditional IRA, Daybell recommends they consider a Roth IRA.
