Top Dollar Angus, Inc. is in search of a new general manager, following the departure of Jared Wareham of Deepwater, Missouri. Wareham’s tenure saw the business grow at a rate greater than 60% annually.

“Jared greatly enhanced industry awareness of the Top Dollar Angus brand, and helped producers in all segments of the beef business understand the value of genetic verification at the feeder calf level of the market,” said Tom Brink, CEO of the Red Angus Association of America and founder of Top Dollar Angus. “He traveled extensively from coast-to-coast and established relationships that will continue for years to come, while also shaping our strategy in multiple ways. Top Dollar Angus is much closer to being a household name among cattle producers in large part due to Jared’s efforts and networking ability. We appreciate everything he did and wish him and his family the best in the new employment opportunity he plans to pursue. We’re also excited to find the next rising talent that will continue to propel the industry’s fastest growing genetic verification business forward.”

Top Dollar Angus president Richard Tokach from St. Anthony, North Dakota said, “Jared’s work ethic and in-depth knowledge about all facets of beef cattle production helped Top Dollar Angus advance in numerous ways. While Jared will be serving the cattle industry in a different capacity, Top Dollar Angus looks forward to providing an opportunity for a knowledgeable, passionate and hardworking leader to assist in further expanding our seedstock partnership and feeder cattle programs.”

The general manager position oversees and implements day-to-day operations and manages a growing team of professional employees. This position requires 50% to 70% travel, strong self-motivation and ability to work effectively with all beef industry segments. Interested persons may inquire at

Top Dollar Angus, Inc. was founded in 2014 with the purpose of bringing differentiated identity and market recognition to Angus- and Red Angus-influenced feeder cattle and calves that objectively rank in the top 25% of the population for growth and carcass traits. In 2019, Top Dollar Angus conducted business in 26 states and Canada and continues to expand its core business by encouraging cow-calf producers to produce superior genetics and through helping them get rewarded on sale day.
