News From the North Carolina Angus Auxiliary
Christy Perdue, NC Angus Auxiliary Advisor/Publicity Chair

The North Carolina Angus Auxiliary had a wonderful start to 2018. Our Annual Meeting was held at the beautiful Childress Vineyards and had 16 members and guests in attendance. Our meeting was productive and set us on the right course for an active and successful 2018! While enjoying a delicious lunch, we also reviewed our busy and successful 2017.

A large part of our success was our Silent Auction and Three Tier Raffle, coordinated by Cortney Holshouser, our Ways and Means Chairman. We were fortunate to have participation from our dedicated members as well as support from friends throughout the country, leading to our most successful fundraising efforts in many years. We are excited to continue with a new fundraiser this year…stay tuned!

We continued with a fun make and take activity, merging our love of Angus with the vineyards. Guests and members were able to make a beautiful, one of a kind Angus wine glass. While showing off our artistic talents, we continued to enjoy fellowship with both new and old members!

As we continued our day at the NC Angus Association Annual Meeting and Banquet, we were fortunate to again present our NC Angus Auxiliary Merit Award to 15 deserving juniors. We were able to award a total of $525.00. We also selected the winners of our Three Tier Raffle.

Our 2017 proposed slate of officers were approved and installed during our Annual Meeting and include President – Jane Ebert, President Elect – Callie Carson, Secretary-Treasurer – Andrea Goforth, and Advisor – Christy Perdue. We would love for you to get to know our Executive Team a little better!

Jane Ebert, North Carolina Angus Auxiliary President

Jane was raised on a tobacco, corn and small grain farm in Wayne County. She graduated from ECU with degree in Family and Consumer Sciences (Home Economics). Jane was employed by the NC Cooperative Extension Service and worked in Davidson County for 32 years. During this time, Bill (husband) and Jane had a small Angus herd in Welcome, NC. Their daughter Betsie showed Angus cattle in 26 states and these events were their family vacations. Betsie was a member of the NCAA and NJAA. In 2001, they officially moved to their second farm in Alleghany County where they continue to raise registered Angus cattle. The Ebert's continue to support and enjoy Angus cattle events and activities on the state, regional and national levels. Their daughter, Betsie, and her husband Jason Michael are actively involved with Angus cattle; their 8 year old granddaughter, Ella Jane, has been showing her Angus cattle since age 4.

Jane served as American Angus Auxiliary president in 2001.

Callie Carson, North Carolina Angus Auxiliary President Elect

Callie Carson has been an Angus enthusiast since 1998, when she bought her first Angus heifer. With some encouragement and assistance from other NC angus breeders, Callie and her sister, participated in numerous Angus shows and events as juniors. The highlight of Callie's junior career was receiving the Outstanding Leadership Award at the 2003 NJAS. Callie is an NC State graduate with a BS in Ag Communications and MS in Ag and Extension Education. Callie has worked for NC Farm Bureau Federation since 2011 as a District Field Representative. Her duties there include assisting 9 counties in Northwestern NC with record keeping, education and outreach, leadership development, policy development, and programming. Callie and her husband, John, have a 2-year-old son, Isaac, and are expecting their second child in June 2018. They own a farm in Laurel Spring, NC where they currently produce forage and have plans for a registered cattle herd. Callie is proud to be a member of the NC Angus Auxiliary, promoting the Angus breed and encouraging young people to develop leadership skills.

Andrea Goforth, North Carolina Angus Auxiliary Secretary/Treasurer

Andrea is from Winston-Salem and now lives with her husband, Tim, and children in East Bend. They have settled in quite nicely to the community and recently completed building a beautiful new house on their farm. The Goforth's have two children Alyssa and Chance. Alyssa is getting her veterinary technician degree from Surry Community College and working almost full time with a local veterinarian. Chance is a freshman at Forbush High School where he is actively involved in the JROTC program. When Andrea and Tim married 20 years ago, they decided to have their own herd of commercial cattle. They purchased their first purebred Angus female, an Emblynette daughter, from the 2012 Wood Angus Sale. Since then they have jumped a hundred percent into the purebred Angus business striving to produce top quality genetics in an eye appealing package. Tim and Andrea are also great supporters of the NC Angus Association and its programs. They are finishing up a three year term as advisors for the NC Junior Angus Association. Andrea has worked for LabCorp for 15 years.

Christy Perdue, North Carolina Angus Auxiliary Advisor

Christy was raised in the rural community of Louisburg, where generations of Perdue's have been raised. The families major crop was tobacco and tobacco continues to be grown on the family's land. Although active in 4-H as a child, Christy did not participate in raising or showing livestock. Her love for Angus cattle came at a later age as her sister began showing Angus cattle. After many years behind the scenes, her sister encouraged her to become involved in the NC Angus Auxiliary. This grew to an involvement in the American Angus Auxiliary. After a trip to Kansas for the Women Connected Conference, Christy became interested in and was elected as the Angus Gift Barn Manager for the American Angus Auxiliary. Christy dedicated more than 5 years as manager and strived to expand and flourish the Auxiliary's traditional fundraiser. She was able to travel many miles across the country with her family as Gift Barn Manager. Christy currently serves on the Nominating Committee for the American Angus Auxiliary. Christy graduated for the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill in 2002 with a BA in Biology. She has work at WakeMed Rehab in Occupational Therapy for 14 years. She continues to enjoy visits to the farm and attending shows with her sister and brother-in-law.
