Ways & Means

To support the Wisconsin Angus Auxiliary projects the ways and means committee holds fundraising events including our dessert auction, held at the Wisconsin State Futurity Sale in March, generating the majority of our funds. We wish to thank those breeders who support this event with their generous bidding. During this sale the Auxiliary also hosts the food stand.

Annually we offer for sale CAB® summer sausage and cheddar cheese gift boxes in the fall. There are several options to fit any budget and can be used as customer appreciation gifts or for that hard to buy for friend. For order information contact Susan Quam at sgquam@charter.net or 608-575-9504.
