Top Dollar Angus and Blue Grass Stockyards recently announced they have completed arrangements for a strategic partnership designed to benefit producers east of the Mississippi River. The partnership will provide expanded promotion opportunities for commercial cow-calf producers who market feeder cattle with objectively-determined, Top 25% ranking growth and carcass genetics.

The agreement brings together two companies focused on promotion and marketing of their customers’ feeder cattle. Top Dollar Angus is the first of its kind feeder cattle genetic verification company for Top 25% feeding performance and carcass beef genetics. Blue Grass Stockyards emphasizes the marketing of beef cattle through their network of auction markets, while providing customers with progressive and innovative programs to obtain the broadest array of marketing opportunities.

“This first-of-its-kind partnership with Blue Grass Stockyards, provides producers access to the innovative genetic verification and promotion services Top Dollar Angus has championed and become widely known for,” said Nate Smith, Top Dollar Angus general manager “We have a great deal of respect for Blue Grass Stockyards, and are confident it will benefit progressive producers in the Eastern United States.

Customers of Blue Grass with top-ranking genetics will now be able to verify and promote their cattle to a broader base of buyers and feedlots who constantly seek cattle that grow and grade.

Jim Akers, chief operating officer of Blue Grass Stockyards commented, “We are excited to offer yet another layer of value-added opportunity for our customers. Blue Grass is constantly seeking to innovate in the programs we offer and our alignment with Top Dollar Angus certainly moves that effort forward.”

Top Dollar Angus, founded in 2014, is the first-of-its-kind genetic verification and marketing company with a focus on Angus and Red Angus feeder cattle that objectively rank in the top 25% for growth and carcasses traits.
