The Illinois Angus Association was founded in 1955, as a state affiliate of the American Angus Association, by a progressive group of Angus breeders. Since then, the Illinois Angus Association has grown to more than 500 members, dedicated to promoting the Angus breed.

Illinois Angus Association Membership

Members of the Illinois Angus Association are listed in our membership directory along with exclusive sale listings and sale and show results. Our Illinois Junior Angus Association members have access to our scholarship program and special junior events. The Illinois Angus Association is also supported by our women’s organization, the Illinois Angus Auxiliary, who work to promote the Angus breed and assist Illinois junior members with their education expenses through scholarship programs.

The Illinois Angus Association hosts a variety of events throughout the year. One of the most popular is the Illinois Angus Futurity, held in conjunction with the Illinois Beef Expo each February. This event is always one of the premier Angus consignment sales in the country.

We also produce the Illinois Angus News, the official publication of our association. The Illinois Angus News is printed as a part of the Illinois Beef magazine, and is dedicated to giving the Angus cattle breeders of Illinois what they want to see. The publication features advertisements, stories, sales reports and industry news.
