Canadian Angus Association meets in Saskatoon

Angus breeders from across Canada are gathering in Saskatoon this week for the Canadian Angus Association's annual meeting and convention.

The Chair of the Convention Committee is Michelle Sauder from Windy Willow Farms in the Hodgeville area.

She says the Angus breed is a cornerstone of the beef cattle sector.

"It's their mothering ability, the maternal aspect, the natural marbling in the meat, and for vigor and calving in particular.  It's a great cross with any of the other breeds in Canada. So, it does end up at the top of the list when you're looking at registrations and cattle numbers."

For those taking in this year's event, it's going to be a busy few days with tours and informational sessions.
