Top Dollar Angus Inc., a leader in genetic verification and marketing of high-value Angus and Red Angus-based feeder calves, is excited to announce Nathan Smith as their new general manager.
Smith joins Top Dollar Angus with a strong cattle and crop background, stemming from his family’s farm near Pratt, Kansas. His early upbringing in the livestock industry led him to a career in the cattle business, focused on assisting producers in the improvement of their livestock. Throughout his career, Smith has served the American Simmental Association as a field representative, the North American Limousin Foundation as a regional manager, and most recently as a territory manager for Neogen.
"I accepted this role with Top Dollar Angus because of the passion I have for the beef industry and look forward to continuing to work with the great people involved," said Smith. "This position with Top Dollar Angus is definitely a win-win in my mind. Not only do we get to verfiy and promote top-of-the-bell curve beef genetics, but also work with numerous producers and industry partners who share that same drive and passion for beef industry success."
Tom Brink, chief executive officer of the Red Angus Association of America and founder of Top Dollar Angus, said, "Nathan is the right person for this position to continue the company's rapid growth, and we are pleased to have him join our team. He has a great cattle production background and understands all segments of the beef industry from seedstock to packer. He has worked and traveled in many parts of the country and is familiar with the challenges ranchers face in different environments and market situations. We look forward to him becoming our new general manager in early 2021."
Nathan and his wife, Ashley reside in Colorado and maintain a small beef cow herd. Smith will assume his full-time duties with Top Dollar Angus on January 1, 2020.
