GAINESVILLE - Linkesh Land & Cattle Co, Gainesville, is now a member of the American Angus Association.<br />
The Missouri-based American Angus Association, with over 24,000 active adult and junior members, is the largest beef breed association in the world. Its computerized records include detailed information on more than 17 million registered Angus.<br />
The Association records ancestral information, keeps production records on individual animals, and develops selection tools for its members. These programs and services help members select and mate the best animals in their herds to produce "quality genetics for the beef cattle industry and quality beef for consumers."
Minority leaders from the Latino and African-American communities of Gainesville met to form an alliance last week against Gainesville's at-large voting system, and that group staged an official protest at Tuesday night's Gainesville city council meeting.
