Angus breeders across the nation in 2009 registered 282,911 head of Angus cattle.
"Our year-end statistics continue to demonstrate strong demand for Angus genetics and solidify our long-held position as a leader in the beef cattle industry," Schumann said. "These results underscore our members' commitment to providing genetic solutions to the beef cattle industry."
The American Angus Association, headquartered in St. Joseph, Mo., is the largest beef registry association in the world in terms of both annual registrations and active members. For details on the angus breed, visit www.angus.org.
