Georgia Simmental Simbrah Association,
People, Places and Cattle!
Mr Commercial Cattleman,
want to produce Commercial females like this?

If so use Simmental and SimAngus Bulls!
 "Crossbred cows producing Composite sired calves provide a 23.3 % improvement in pounds
of weaned calf per cow exposed over straight bred cows and calves."
    ---- USDA Meat Animal Research Center
Simmentals = More Growth and More Muscle!

Simmentals = Calving Ease and Maternal Power!
