Angus Juniors Join The Web

24 September 2009

US - The National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) have achieved support of over 700 members on their social networking site in less than two months.

The association is leveraging social networking sites to increase its presence, advance the interest of the Angus breed, and communicate efficiently with members across the country.

Members of the NJAA fan pages receive association press releases, postings on internship opportunities and career development, and up-to-date information on conference and show dates, deadlines, and coverage. They also can network with each other while learning about management, show preparation and animal husbandry practices.

“The NJAA fan page is a great tool for junior Angus members to meet new friends, build relationships and network with other youth from across the United States,” says Mr Ruff, director of youth activities for the American Angus Association. “The sky’s the limit on just how big this community can become. Our use of social networking sites will no doubt help to solidify the future of the Angus breed and the American Angus Association.”
