Women’s History Month: Honoring Angus’s own “Performance Queen”

Over half of century of building knowledege and love for the Angus breed.

All month long we have been recognizing the hard work and dedication women have in the Ag industry. Today we honor Margaret Dreesmann, who played a vital role in improving the Angus breed and protecting its integrity.

Dreesmann was just 21 years old when she began her career at the American Angus Association in 1967. The Saint Joseph, Missouri native had no computer experience and had attended just a couple of years of junior college when a high-school friend referred Dreesmann to be her replacement as a computer programmer. She learned a lot during her 54 years including playing a major role in protecting Angus-breed data. At the office, she was known as the “Performance Queen” for her wealth of knowledge about the Angus Herd Improvement Records/Performance programs.

In 2021 she was inducted into the Angus Heritage Foundation, which celebrates the innovators and visionaries of the Angus breed.
