Annual American Simmental/Simbrah Foundation Auction was held during the
North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville, Kentucky,
on November 10.
This year's auction set a new record, raising $37,000 to be used primarily for youth activities. Members and supporters donated items including artwork and prints, unique crafts, hunting trips, semen and embryos from previous National Champions and much more.
Over 200 guests dined on a buffet style meal at the Chairman's reception banquet while bidding on items to support the youth. All proceeds go to benefit the American Junior Simmental Association programs and the $15,000 in scholarships the Foundation given annually.
Headquartered in Bozeman, Montana, the American Simmental Association maintains the breed registries for the Simmental and Simbrah breed of cattle. The organization has an active adult and junior membership of more than 8,000. For more information, please visit www.simmental.org.
