Real Beef. McWilliams Ranches has been recognized nationally by the American Angus Association for having one registered Angus bull included in the Association's 2011 Pathfinder Report.
Only 2,099 of the nearly 30,000 American Angus Association members are represented in this year's report, according to Bill Bowman, chief operating officer and director of performance programs of the Association with headquarters in Saint Joseph, Mo.
The Pathfinder Program identifies superior Angus cows based upon recorded performance traits that are economically important to efficient beef production. More than 1.9 million eligible dams and more than 6.2 million weaning records were examined to determine Pathfinder status.
Bulls that have sired a minimum of five or more Pathfinder Cows are also recognized as Pathfinder Sires.
All registered Angus cows and sires meeting the strict Pathfinder standards are listed, along with their owners, in the annual Pathfinder Report available at angus.org

The exhibition presents pieces showing the juxtaposition of fine woods complimented together with media carved designed glass. The exhibition explores the symbolism of nature and life.
A lot of the pieces are green in that they use reclaimed, or recycled materials.
