24/7 Online Resource Provided for the AAS

02 March 2009

US - Users of Angus genetics can access information at their fingertips any time day or night with a new online resource provided by the American Angus Association.

More than half of active Association members already use AAA Login, available to anyone with Internet access, including non-member buyers, also known as affiliates, who have Angus bulls or females transferred to their name. Affiliates are typically commercial cattle producers who use Angus genetics.

AAA Login is simple to use. Members or affiliates create their own profile by clicking on AAA Login in the upper-left hand corner of the Angus home page, www.angus.org. All that is needed to get started is a member or affiliate code. Once a user creates his or her profile, a unique password will be generated for him or her and sent to the e-mail provided; at that time the user can customize a private password that only he or she will know.

“Any member who already stores their papers electronically should transfer their papers electronically to their commercial buyers and inform them of AAA Login,” says Don Laughlin, Association director of member services. “Electronically transferred papers get the work through and back to the customer more quickly, and AAA Login offers many services to the affiliate, non-members.”

Some of the services that affiliates can take advantage of include easy access to their registered herd’s performance records, EPD updates, the ability to clean up their herd inventory, transferring cattle to another buyer, and customizable $Value Indexes. In addition, if the affiliate’s commercial cow herd, Angus, Angus-cross or other breed is enrolled in the Beef Record System (BRS), AAA Login gives instant access to his or her cow production records

“The customizable reports available in AAA Login are a great tool for all producers. One of the best is the Custom Animal Report that is incredibly useful when looking at a pen of heifers and trying to select replacements,” Laughlin says.
