The American Angus Association® welcomes Jay Nordhausen of Grant, Neb., as the new regional manager for Nebraska and Colorado. A talented young professional in the livestock industry, Nordhausen will play a significant role in helping Association members identify herd goals, learn new programs and services, and grow into the future.

"The Angus breed and the Association mean a great deal to the beef business," Nordhausen says. "I look forward to being part of that tradition, and working with Angus cattlemen and their customers in my area."

As a regional manager, Nordhausen will represent the Angus breed at various cattle events, sales, shows and other activities throughout the territory.

Breeders are encouraged to ask him questions about Association programs and services, or for help locating Angus seedstock. He can also advise producers on marketing opportunities available through the Association, including advertising through the Angus Journal and other avenues.

"Jay will be an outstanding asset for Angus breeders across the Midwest," says Bryce Schumann, Association chief executive officer. "His previous experience is a solid foundation for this new role, and I encourage breeders to reach out to him for the latest in programs and services from the Association."

A native of Nebraska, Nordhausen graduated from the University of Nebraska (UNL) with a bachelor's degree in animal science, and a master's degree in animal science and agricultural leadership.

He served as a livestock buyer and broker at Wright Livestock Inc. in North Platte, Neb., where his responsibilities included buying and selling feeder cattle and bred cattle, and coordinating delivery dates and trucking accommodations between buyer and sellers.

Nordhausen also served as the interim head livestock judging coach at UNL for the 2012-2013 year. He coached students to compete at the highly competitive collegiate level, and coordinated the Nebraska State FFA livestock judging contest for 575 contestants. He also recruited potential livestock judging team members and animal science students within Nebraska and throughout the Midwest.

Contact Nordhausen at or 308.289.1548. He looks forward to getting to know more Angus breeders in the area and finding ways to be of service.
