The American Angus AssociationSM announces the addition of Logan Ipsen, a recent graduate of Utah State University, to its staff. Ipsen assumes the duties of the regional manager in the Western U.S., including the states of Arizona, California, Nevada and Utah.

Ipsen brings a variety of beef industry experience to the Association. He was raised on a purebred Angus and Hereford operation in Idaho, has fit and shown cattle, and also has experience in feed and semen sales. Ipsen earned a bachelor's degree in animal science with a minor in agricultural business at Utah State, where he was active in student senate and Animal Science Club.

“The Association is fortunate to have someone with Logan's background in the beef cattle industry to fill the regional manager position in the West,” says Jim Shirley, vice president of industry relations for the Association. “We expanded the vacated territory to include Utah, to provide better service to our members.”

Ipsen, and his wife, Stevie, will relocate to northern California as he begins his position in early June. As regional manager, Ipsen will be the membership liaison for the Association, provide assistance to members, promote the breed at numerous events including conventions, shows and sales, and sell advertising for Angus Productions Inc. (API).

Ipsen fills the position, previously held by John Dickinson, who worked for the Association nearly nine years. Rod Wesselman remains the regional manager in the Northwest, and still covers Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

Regional managers are one of the great resources the American Angus Association, with headquarters in Saint Joseph, Mo., provides its 34,000 members nationwide. Regional managers are also a great resource for all commercial producers who use or are interested in using Angus genetics.
