Welcome to the Iowa Simmental Association

A longtime supporter of the Simmental industry. The primary objective of the Iowa Simmental Association is the development and promotion of the Simmental breed of cattle in the state of Iowa. Not only does the Iowa Simmental Association support the industry within the state and for its members, but Iowa makes up the largest membership within the American Simmental Association. With Iowa being the fourth largest beef producing state nationwide, the beef industry in Iowa plays a major role in agriculture and the livelihood of many of our residents.

The Iowa Simmental Association isn’t just for adults. The Iowa Junior Simmental Association has always been showcased on the local, state and national level through its young exhibitors. Each year numerous young Simmental breeders attend events such as the Iowa Beef Expo, State Field Day, North Central Regional, the Junior National Classic and finish the summer at the Iowa State Fair. No matter if you are a large or small cattle breeder, the Iowa Simmental Association hopes to support its members in many facets of the beef industry.
