Angus Live began as a way for Angus breeders to have a breed-specific online marketing option for their programs. Other online sites focus on selling “everything” but we wanted to provide a service where our expertise and passion would stay breed specific and my roots have always been Angus.

I was raised on a small Angus farm in Northern Indiana where I am a third-generation Angus breeder. My paternal grandfather bought his first Angus female and bull over 50 years ago. With being a smaller operation and only calving 40-50 cows a year, we never had enough inventory to host our own production sale which was always a dream of mine; therefore, I thought having an online avenue would be a great way that breeders of any size could have their own event and market their genetics to a broad spectrum of breeders from all over the country. Whether you have one head or five hundred head to sell, the options are unlimited on Angus Live.

A key component in building Angus Live is a lifelong friend that has helped from Day One, Brian Snell. Brian and I went to school together since our elementary days and, with Brian’s skills in computer graphics, he and I discussed the possibility of making this idea work. My support staff at the office, Sherri Huhs and Jenny Porter-Haag, came onboard to assist in the accounting and sale preparation aspects of our business.

This plan to market Angus cattle online came together with my Angus heritage combined with the knowledge of marketing and the skill set learned from my 15 years of being a sale manager at the American Angus Hall of Fame continuing with the addition of an amazing staff and then in February of 2012 we hosted our very first online sale.

Over the years we have realized great success including a bull that went to a major AI stud from our very first sale and continued with selling the Grand Champion Female and Res. Grand Champion Female of the world’s toughest show, the National Junior Angus Show. We also sold the Grand Champion Female at the N.A.I.L.E, American Royal, National Western Stock Show, and numerous state and local shows as well and the show winnings continue today.

We owe all the credit of our success with Angus Live to the Angus breeders and buyers over the years to be their Go To source to promote Angus genetics.

Angus Live, Online Administrative Assistant

Jenny Porter-Haag

Jenny grew up in a small town in northeast Florida surrounded by as many animals as she could press past her parents, although cattle were not a part of her life other than her weekend and summer stays with grandparents in southern Georgia until she began working at the American Angus Hall of Fame in the fall of 2006.

From the very first day of working with Angus breeders, Jenny has been amazed by the passion and commitment exuded from this dedicated group of individuals. With her strong work ethic, business degree and customer service driven personality, Jenny was a natural to help with the collection of information for our Angus Live sales and encouraged Jeremy to pursue his dreams of starting up an online source of providing superior Angus genetics.

In their spare time, Jenny and Jeremy enjoy spending time with their three children, Drew, Aleigh and Matthew, along with their feisty dog, Willow, and enjoy time with family and friends across the states. You might also find Jenny trying out the latest coffee shop or with her nose in a book.
