A new documentary series about the beef industry will begin airing this weekend on television and satellite networks across the country.

The announcement was made today by the American Angus Association®, the nation’s largest beef organization, and Farm Journal Television, which produces AgDay and U.S. Farm Report, the longest-running television programs that focus on agriculture and rural America.

The segments, titled “I Am Angus,” tell the personal stories of cattle producers from across the country.

“We’re excited to be working with Farm Journal Television in this endeavor,” Bryce Schumann, Association CEO, says. “Both AgDay and U.S. Farm Report have a long-standing tradition of broadcasting excellence. We feel privileged to provide them with quality content about beef producers and other beef industry segments.”

AgDay and U.S. Farm Report are broadcast by more than 150 TV stations nationwide and on RFD-TV. Each weekday morning AgDay reaches more than 200,000 households. More than 500,000 households across the country view U.S. Farm Report each weekend.

“We’re looking forward to featuring many of the people involved in the Angus breed, and the opportunity to tell their stories to our audience,” says Wes Mills, executive producer of Farm Journal Television. “Our audience will enjoy the stories and beautiful visuals that these segments have to offer.”
