Who is the Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation

The Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation (FCSF) is a not-for-profit registered foundation dedicated to scholarship and educational support of youth in the business of agriculture and Simmental cattle. The Foundation is governed by a board of directors who are heavily involved in the Simmental industry and who have a vested interest in educating youth, developing leadership, and encouraging young people to be a part of the agriculture industry. The Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation belongs to all of those that had the vision to believe in bringing the Simmental breed to Canada, those that supported and have developed it over the past 47 years, and those that see the value it brings to the generations of the future.

Focus of the Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation

Scholarships - The FCSF administers scholarships for youth who are involved in Canadian agriculture. Assisting in the development of youth with a focus on advancing their understanding of agriculture is a very important component of the FCSF. Youth Development - The FCSF supports youth programs such as the Young Canadian Simmental Association (YCSA). The YCSA is one of the most progressive and dynamic agricultural youth organizations in Canada. It is open to anyone 25 years and under who then have the opportunity to participate in various activities across Canada. YCSA members learn important skills including public speaking, marketing and communications which develop strong and dynamic leaders for not only our industry, but society as a whole.

Research and Development - The FCSF is actively engaged in supporting research to benefit the agriculture industry in Canada. This work is focused on improving the Canadian beef industry by enhancing production efficiency, product quality and profitability.

What the Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation is doing FSCF Scholarships

The Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation is honored to administer 3 exciting post-secondary scholarships. The Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation recognizes the importance of supporting youth in agriculture and their goals of advanced education. The scholarship program is one of the ways that the Foundation intends to support youth and the future of the livestock industry. In 2015 the FSCF is excited to award $9,000 in scholarships. The current 2014 winners are listed on page 22 or go online to www.simmentalfoundation.com to find past winners and the current application form that can be used for all three of the scholarships for the 2015-16 academic year. Youth Development The FCSF supports youth programs such as the Young Canadian Simmental Association (YCSA). The YCSA is one of the most progressive and dynamic agricultural youth organizations in Canada. It is open to anyone 25 years and under who then have the opportunity to participate in various activities across Canada. For 2015 the FCSF will be sending 15% of the Fundraiser auction directly to the YCS program to assist in running of their 2015-16 activities. Here are just some of the great things we hear back from past YCSA members about this great program

Through the YCSA program we sincerely appreciate the lifelong friendships we have developed. The opportunities and personal growth we experienced as a result of the YCSA experience is unquantifiable and has been a benefit we still have to this very day. Lynsey Milliner 1994-2012 & Ashleigh Milliner-Cowan 1993-2004

During my time in the YCS program I learned how to speak in public, meet new people, present myself professionally, work hard towards a goal, be a modest winner and a respectful loser. All which came in handy when I was hired on at the age of 23 as a manager in a retirement home after attending the University of Guelph. I owe my success to the wonderful YCSA program and the generosity of its members, leaders and scholarships. - Chelsea O'Connor, YCSA Alumni 1997 to 2012

Looking back, the YCSA was a huge part of my life. Whether it was showing cattle, learning how to work with others, building confidence or making lifelong friends, this program has helped me and so many others build character traits that are integral to success. Working alongside with the CSA board, the YCSA is a great contributor to shaping our future agricultural leaders. - Scott Matthews

YCSA as a youth organization, helps young people build a strong foundation for their future, such as thinking on your feet, attention to details and networking. The YCSA program helped bring our family together as we traveled to events across the country. As past active members in the YCSA, we learned skills and confidence that helped us participate in exchange programs, excel in 4-H and our education, which has served us both well and continue to help achieve our careers. Trish Wooddisse-Kelly & Josh Wooddisse As a shy kid, my Grandparents enrolled me in YCS when I was about 10 years old, in hopes of bringing me out of my shell and trying to get me more interested in the cattle industry. I sat on the OYCS and National YCS Boards for many years, traveled across the country and overseas and met many International Young Simmentalers too! The many friendships and fun times, still bring a smile to my face. On top of that, the technical, leadership, and communication skills I’ve learnt from the program have led me to the many successes I’ve had so far in my career.” – Katie Wood, Ont YCSA Alumni 1993-2010

Donated By: Elm Tree Frams Glenn, Pam, Mariah & Sophie Wotten Little Britain, Ontario 705 878-1713 www.elmtreefarms.com

Elm Tree Farms is a fifth generation family farm, owned and operated by Glenn and Pamela Wotten with daughters Mariah and Sophie. Located in southern Ontario, their cattle operation started out as a commercial cow/calf herd of over 100 cows. The purchase of their first Fleckvieh Simmental bull from D. Maronda Simmentals in 1993 formed a strong Simmental influence in the cowherd, eventually becoming the heart of the program.

Previous Bred Heifer Donators

Each year the Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation designates a “Friend of the Foundation.” This individual / family has generously donated a bred heifer to the Foundation Auction. Their commitment to the Foundation through this gesture is greatly appreciated and recognized throughout the year.

X-Tasy 4X is just a young female that has ripped out three great bull calves for us so far! Her first son Vertigo 18Z was a feature R Plus Hardrock son that sold through our spring bull sale, and with the dominant blaze face she passes down, he was a very popular commodity. Her sire, Ebony’s Intuition, needs no introduction, as he was the Supreme Champion Bull right here at Farmfair International a few Years back. X-tasy is a real nice-uddered female, is real feminine and classy in her design, and we feel the mating to the powerhouse Full Throttle bull will give you some pretty dreamy black baldie progeny!
