From the American Angus Assocaiation:
On May 17, 1873 the first Angus bulls arrived in Victoria, Kansas by rail after being stranded on a sandbar during shipping.
Today, you can be a part of the impressive history and the bright future of Angus by making a monetary gift on the anniversary of when the first of our breed arrived safely at home in America.
We are so excited to invite you to participate in the first ever Angus Foundation Angus Day of Giving on May 17, 2021. Leading up to the event, we encourage you to share your personal story of how you have been impacted by the Angus Foundation or the Angus breed.
Be sure to use the hashtag #AngusDay, tag us in your post and use the Facebook profile frame on May 17!
