Simmental's American Journey isn't a pretentious stroll through history. Dr. Hough candidly tackles the breed’s history through good times and tough years. He stresses the lessons learned at FOCUS 2000 and its pivotal role in our breed’s re-alignment with industry needs. He emphasizes Simmental’s science and performance roots and frankly depicts the leadership’s strengths and visions. This book accurately conveys the association’s struggles and vitality. It is a must-read for ag history buffs, as well as future cattlemen.”  Susan Russellformer ASA Trustee.
