Angus Foundation to sell Certified Angus Beef barn painting at Angus Convention

In 2018, Certified Angus Beef celebrated 40 years with the “Brand the Barn” campaign, painting 40 barns across the country. At the 2022 Angus Convention, the Angus Foundation will offer breeders a chance to have their barn branded with the logo.

The Angus Foundation is offering the chance at a highly desired Certified Angus Beef (CAB) barn painting at the 2022 Angus Convention in Salt Lake City. The painting will be auctioned off at the annual American Angus Association® awards dinner and reception Sunday, Nov. 6. Funds raised will help further the Foundation’s mission of supporting Angus education, youth and research.

In 2018, CAB celebrated 40 years in business with the “Brand the Barn” campaign, painting 40 barns belonging to Angus breeders in 25 states across the country with the Certified Angus Beef ® brand logo. In response to the campaign, many Angus enthusiasts have joined the waiting list to have their own barn painted. The Foundation will offer breeders the chance to skip the line and proudly represent the brand on their operation.

“This is a unique opportunity to show your pride for CAB while also supporting the future of the Angus breed,” said Jaclyn Upperman, Angus Foundation executive director. “The winning bidder will gain a beautiful barn painting and can feel fulfilled knowing they’ve helped continue the Angus legacy.”

CAB will commission artist Troy Freeman to brand the winning bidder’s barn and will also provide $1,000 for the barn owner to host a celebration event in conjunction with the barn painting. Bidders need not be present to purchase the offering. For more information about this opportunity, contact Upperman at To learn more about the 2022 Angus Convention, visit
