Iowa

Harold Williams, Orient, Iowa, was re-elected to the office of treasurer and to serve another three-year term with the American Simmental Association Board of Trustees at their 43rd Annual Meeting in Denver, Colo., Jan. 15.

Williams and his wife Joyce own and operate Diamond W Simmentals. They began their operation in 1974 after artificially inseminating their Hereford cows to legendary Simmental bulls, King Arthur and Pacific. Diamond W Ranch is known for being among the earliest breeders to develop a market for black baldy Simmentals. They built a 500-head capacity feedlot, which is heavily utilized to test bulls and carcass steers. Williams is currently the executive secretary/treasurer of the Iowa Simmental Association, where he has been a member for 36 years, including a four-year tenure as president. He has served a key role on numerous committees with the Board of Trustees and is the recipient of the prestigious Christiansen Elite Award. He is an Honorary FFA Life Member and the father of three adult children whom all maintain Simmental-influenced operations.

Also seated were re-elected incumbents, Jessie Driggers, Glennville, GA; Kevin Thompson, Almont, ND; and three newly elected members, Jimmy Holliman, Marion Junction, AL; Blake Nelson, Warner, OK; and Dale Miller, Gildford, MT.

The American Simmental Association is headquartered in Bozeman, Mont., and maintains the breed registries for the Simmental and Simbrah breeds of cattle. ASA has an active adult and junior membership of nearly 5,000.
