January 25, 2019
Bozeman, MT – Tim Curran, Ione, California, has been re-elected to the American Simmental Association (ASA) Board of Trustees and will continue to represent the Western region.
Tim Curran and his wife, Jill, maintain Circle Ranch, a herd of primarily SimAngus™ females in the foothills of California's rugged, majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range. Cattle winter at lower elevations, but summer above 5,000 feet. His cow herd is comprised of 80% seedstock while 20% are commercial females. Genetics are marketed through the Beef Solutions Bull Sale, held annually on the fourth Thursday of September in conjunction with an area Angus breeder, Bruin Ranch. Curran sells 100 SimAngus bulls through the sale and another 60 SimAngus bulls by private treaty.
A member of the American Simmental Association since 1992, he is a strong advocate for performance cattle, having served as a director of the California Beef Cattle Improvement Association (CBCIA) and was named CBCIA Seedstock Producer of the Year in 2010. In addition, he serves as Open Pen Show Advisor and Replacement Heifer Project Advisor at the local county fair. Prior to becoming a full-time cattleman, he spent ten years as a retail meat cutter. Curran and Jill are the parents of two sons, Taylor and Austin.
Curran was formally seated during ASA's 51st Annual Meeting held January 20, in Denver. Also seated were newly elected J.W. Brune, Overbrook, Kansas, and Greg Walthall, Windsor, Missouri; and re-elected Clay Lassle, Glendive, Montana.
Founded in 1968, the American Simmental Association is headquartered in Bozeman, MT. ASA is committed to leveraging technology, education and collaboration to accelerate genetic profitability for the beef industry. In keeping with its commitment, ASA, along with its partners, formed International Genetic Solutions – the world's largest genetic evaluation of beef cattle.
