Bradley Joins American Gelbvieh Association

LINCOLN, Neb. – The American Gelbvieh Association (AGA) is pleased to announce the addition of Shianna Bradley to the AGA staff as the office services specialist. In her role, Shianna will assist AGA members and customers with submitting data to the online registry service, support general office functions, and work with the DNA department to organize the DNA sample storage library.

“We are excited to have Shianna as a part of the AGA team,” says Megan Slater, AGA executive director. “With her welcoming and energetic personality, members will enjoy visiting with her on the phone and we are looking forward to the fresh ideas she’ll bring to our team as she finishes up her degree.”

Bradley grew up in South Whitley, Indiana, where she was an active 4-H member and FFA officer. She is finishing up her last semester at Purdue University pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science with a concentration in Animal Agribusiness and a minor in Farm Management. During her time at Purdue, she was an active member of Block and Bridle. She made the decision to complete her degree online to have hands-on experience within the industry.

“I am excited to be working at AGA to help members in such a supportive community,” said Bradley. “I didn’t have the opportunity to be raised with cattle, but my time in college has opened my eyes to what the beef industry has to offer. This opportunity to serve AGA members along with expanding my knowledge and experience within the cattle industry is truly amazing.”

Bradley began her role with the AGA on January 2 and can be reached at or at the AGA office at 303-465-2333.

The American Gelbvieh Association is a progressive beef cattle breed association representing 1,100 members and approximately 40,000 cows assessed annually in a performance-oriented total herd reporting system.
