North Carolina Angus Auxiliary Summer
Christy Perdue, NC Angus Auxiliary Publicity Chair
No matter your age, summers are a busy time for us all. The ladies of the North Carolina Angus Auxiliary are no exception. We spent the official start of Summer at the Atlantic National Angus Show, held annually in Timonium, Maryland. Along with supporting and cheering on our NC Angus Juniors, members of our NC Angus Auxiliary took part in the Atlantic National Royalty Reception. Sponsored by Carol Bloom and Gina Hope, North Carolina and Indiana Angus Auxiliary members hosted the Angus Royal-Tea. Among the beautiful teapots, flowers, and pearls, Angus Royalty from many states enjoyed lessons on etiquette as well as a year in review from the current Miss American Angus, Madison Weaver. Delicious refreshments as well as a special gift for each of our royalty rounded out the afternoon. Representing our North Carolina Junior Angus Royalty were Queen, Marcie Harward; Princess, Mattie Harward; and Sweetheart, Ava Wood. Twelve Angus Royalty, as well as a future royalty prospect, were in attendance, along with their guests. A wonderful time was had by all!
This summer, we began our 2019 fundraiser as well! We are excited to release our second cookbook, titled Pasture and Plate. Featuring 400 recipes, including a beef and show day favorites section, we are thrilled with the final product. Books are priced at $15 and are selling fast. Contact a member or look for us on Facebook to order yours today!
Traditionally, our summers also include a Summer Outing. This is always a time for our members and guests to gather for fellowship and to explore a new area or to expand our knowledge, whether it’s a winery, a historic landmark, or an industry related tour. This year, we are excited to announce that our outing will be a day trip to beautiful West Jefferson, North Carolina. Taking place on Friday, July 26, our day will begin at 9 am for a tour of the Ashe County Cheese Factory. After our tour, we will enjoy a stroll and shopping in Downtown West Jefferson. Our lunch will be at the highly rated Hotel Tavern. After what should be a delicious lunch, we will end our day with a St. Mary Frescoes Tour. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for further information and to sign up to attend. Direct questions to our President Elect, Andrea Goforth. Members, their guests, and any friends of the Auxiliary are welcome to attend. We hope to see you there!!!

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.

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.
