BrownfieldAgNews reports:

There's been a shake-up in the ranks of the American Angus Association, the nation's largest beef registry association.

In an April 11th letter to American Angus Association members, CEO Bryce Schumann announced that six regional managers and six staff members are, in his words, "no longer employed by the organization."

According to Schumann, the action stems from a letter sent in March to the American Angus Association board of directors by 15 association employees. The letter expressed concerns over management of the organization and asked for his-Schumann's-removal as CEO. After an investigation of the issues involved, the association's board of directors reaffirmed its support for Schumann and gave him the authority to deal with those who filed the complaint.

In his letter to the association's members, Schumann said "We fully understand that this decision may create unexpected hardships for our members, but please be assured that, in light of this unforeseen circumstance, the Board of Directors and employees of the Association will do everything in our power to alleviate or prevent any inconveniences or disruptions in services related to the changes taking place."

The American Angus Association declined Brownfield's request for comment.
