ASA and Dr. Bob Hough team up for
"Simmental's American Journey"

The talented staff of the American Simmental Association Publication started layout last week of their book "Simmental's American Journey." Exciting to actually see some finished chapters. Pictured is the first imported bull Parisien with ASA's first executive secretary Donald Vaniman. The book will first be available at ASA's Fall Focus in August. It will be 8.5" by 11" that will serve as both a book to be read and as well as a coffee table book. Author Dr. Bob Hough will be signing books at the social event following the Fall Focus educational session.
