About the World Angus Forum
In 2017 The World Angus Forum will be held in the UK, the home of the Aberdeen Angus breed. The Forum will take place from Thursday 15th June – Monday 3rd July 2017 and will incorporate a tour in England, including the National Show at the Three Counties, a tour in Scotland and the Royal Highland Show taking place in Edinburgh, and a Tour of Ireland.
The Forum is held every four years and provides a platform for the exchange of genetics information and breeding objectives, and also acts as a forum for youth involvement, to take us into the future.

The Forum will attract many Angus breeders, farmers and associated companies from all over the world, to listen to speakers, share their knowledge, expertise, experiences and network together.
