GOLDEN BOOK AWARD

Curtis & Susan Russell of Sugar City, CO, were added into the World Simmental Federation's Golden Book. The international leadership award was presented during American Simmental's Ag Gala on Jan. 14, 2018, in conjunction with the National Western Stock Show breed activities.

Curt & Susan each, and often both, have served continually on the Colorado Simmental Association board since 1994; and each have served full terms on the American Simmental board and its executive committee. They are the first husband-wife team to both serve on the national board. They also volunteer with Colorado Cattlemen's Association and Bent-Prowers Cattle & Horse Growers boards. 

The pair own and operate Reflected R Ranch, which features about 150 head of SimGenetics; and WW Feed & Supply LLC in nearby La Junta, CO.

Russell's Reflected R Ranch, and Fred & Phyllis Swain of KY, were inducted into the Golden Book in 2018. Both couples were lauded as Simmental Ambassadors.
