Angus breeders in Colorado and Nebraska are welcoming Drew Feller of Wisner, Neb., as the territory’s new regional manager for the American Angus Association. Before officially beginning his role Sept. 6, Feller greeted many producers during the Nebraska State Fair.
Regional managers are the boots-on-the-ground for the Association and serve throughout 13 membership regions across the United States. As a partner for Angus breeders and others who rely on Angus genetics, Feller will be responsible for helping cattle producers identify herd goals, learn new programs and services, and drive quality within their operations.
“A fifth-generation cattleman from Nebraska and a product of the National Junior Angus Association, Drew brings to the team a wealth of industry knowledge, energy and a true passion for the Angus breed,” says David Gazda, Association director of field services and regional manager in the southeast.
As a regional manager, Feller will represent the Angus breed at various cattle events, sales, shows and other activities throughout the territory. Breeders are encouraged to ask him questions about Association programs and services, or for help locating Angus seedstock.
He can also advise producers on marketing opportunities available through the Association, including advertising through the Angus Journal, Angus Beef Bulletin, The Angus Report and other avenues.
“With the amount of performance data and marketing opportunities available through the American Angus Association, it’s an honor to serve both seedstock and commercial users of Angus genetics,” Feller says. “I look forward to traveling the territory, and being an active member throughout the Angus community in Colorado and Nebraska.”
Feller graduated in May 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in animal science, business concentration, from the University of Nebraska. While on campus, he was part of the Nebraska Beef Industry Scholar program.
He’s owned and managed 5F Cattle Co. since 2012, where he operated his own registered-Angus operation. In 2015, Feller founded the Cattlemen’s Cut sale and worked with producers to meet their individual ranch goals. He has also worked as a manager at Feller and Co. Cattle Feeder, where he contributed to feedlot expansion, herd health and feed management. He also worked in cattle procurement, marketing and sales.
Feller is a member of the Nebraska Angus Association and looks forward to getting to know Angus members throughout the territory. Contact him at email@example.com or 402-841-4215.
