The American Angus Association® welcomes Jake Troutt of Emmett, Idaho, as the new regional manager for Oregon, Washington and Idaho. A native of the northwestern United States, Troutt will play a significant role in helping Association members identify herd goals, learn new programs and services, and grow into the future.

"I feel blessed to have been given this great opportunity," Troutt says. "I couldn't be more excited to be able to serve the Angus breeders and cattlemen in my region."

As a regional manager, Troutt 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.

"Jake's passion for livestock marketing and the beef industry is a great asset for our organization," says Bryce Schumann, Association chief executive officer. "I encourage Angus breeders in Oregon, Washington and Idaho to reach out to him to learn more about the latest programs and services from the Association."

Troutt graduated from Oklahoma State University (OSU) with a bachelor's degree in animal science, with a focus on livestock merchandising. He has been working in the auction business for Troutt and Sons Auctioneers since 2006, and has had summer internships with Agri Beef Co. in Liberal, Kan., and Blue Sage Acres Ranch in Emmett, Idaho.

Troutt was also a member of the livestock judging team at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, Colo., and at OSU in Stillwater, Okla.

Contact Troutt at or at 208.921.6774. He looks forward to getting to know more Angus breeders in the area and finding ways to be of service.
