Through a concerted effort, Missouri Simmental Association members exhibiting at Missouri State Fair were given the opportunity by Director Mark Wolfe to trial run bedding on chipped wood in the Simmental Barn. The wood was graciously donated by James Hentges and Hentges Tree Service.
Special thanks to Missouri State Fair Director Mark Wolfe for working so well with us for years and for allowing us this opportunity, to Linda Hickam, DVM, State Veterinarian for supporting it, to James Hentges for his generosity in providing the chipped wood and to Steve Kusgen, MSA member for removing the sand.
Jordan Cowger, the daughter of Scott and Lorri Cowger, is the new president of the American Junior Simmental Association (AJSA.) Jordan is a member of Missouri Junior Simmental Association. Her parents and grandparents are long-time members of Missouri Simmental Association.
Listen to a conversation with Jordan Cowger:
Missouri Simmental Association State Fair Membership Meeting is to be held on Friday, August 12 during the Missouri State Fair. We will plan on lunch around 12:30 at the Simmental barn and the meeting will follow at approximately 1:15. Please plan to attend and be a part of this great organization. We need everyone’s ideas, input, and help to get this organization strong and working for the breeders. Please share this information with any Simmental breeders that might want to come. If you plan on having lunch with us, please shoot us back an email so we can get a headcount for lunch. See at the fair!
