Welcome to the Western States Red Angus Association
The Western States Red Angus Association serves California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Idaho. Our members are enthusiasts, seedstock producers, feedlot operators, commercial ranchers and show cattle producers.
Whether they have large herds, or small herds, all of our members share a common interest in the promotion of the Red Angus breed. Membership is open to anyone interested in breeding, raising or promoting the Red Angus breed.
The Western States Red Angus Association features two major annual events. Each fall in Reno, Nevada, association members gather for the Bet on Red Sale, and the Red Western Classic - a regional Red Angus show sponsored in part by the Red Angus Association of America.
In 2007, Bet On Red Consignors decided to donate $25 per head sold in the sale to fund a futurity for juniors purchasing heifers and planning on returning with them to the Red Western Classic show the following year. It was decided to name it for Roy McPhee, a Bet On Red founder, long time Red Angus breeder, and a huge supporter of juniors who had recently passed in March of 2007. In the past 6 years, 55 head of females have been sold to juniors with over $17,000 in payouts.
