Dear WSFF Members:


The 21st World Simmental Fleckvieh Congress was a huge success. Edgar Benes and the Polish Simmental Breeders must be congratulated on a job well done. 

I look forward to working with the new officers, as president to move the Federation forward during the next four years. It is my hope that the beef Fleckvieh Simmental will join forces so that we can expand the overall reach of the WSFF and Simmental-Fleckvieh cattle.




Fred Schuetze
