Eric and Darcy Thesing live on Thesing’s Riverside Ranch near Carlos, MN with their children Eric and Jennifer.

We also own Central Marine and Sports, in Carlos, and Darcy works in the lab department at the Douglas County Hospital in Alexandria. Eric and Jenn both attend North Dakota State, majoring in General Ag and Animal Science. Both Eric and Darcy are from a rural background. Eric’s family had a small commercial shorthorn herd, and Darcy’s family finished feeder cattle. They purchased their first registered Simmental cows in 1986, and shortly after, a registered bull. They’ve built their herd, and crossbred most of Eric’s dad, Roy’s herd to purebred stock, and have incorporated some half blood breeding stock. The newest addition to Thesing’s Riverside Ranch is Titus, a half blood bull from Hook Farms. Between them they keep Thesing Family with their about 100 cows and about 15 Donation Heifer. heifers each year. Neither of the Thesing’s was involved with showing cattle until their kids, Eric and Jennifer joined 4-H in third and fourth grade. The family has enjoyed all their road trips to the AJSA and open shows, and they appreciate by participating in both the acquired they’ve friendships and knowledge all the Minnesota and National Associations. They feel it is important to continue to promote the breed, and to continue their involvement by getting other kids involved with agriculture. They have often thought about donating a heifer for the Youth Development Program and were very, honored to be a part of it this year; as Simmental is the featured breed at the 2009 MN Beef Expo.

As I head back to my studies at college, I wish our breeders good luck at the rest of the shows for the season. If I don’t get a chance to see any of you soon, I’ll see you at State Sale weekend in February! Take care! Sincerely, Sara Thissen MJSA President

Many of our juniors attended the National FFA convention in Indianapolis, IN on October 22-25 to participate in contest or be a delegate for their chapter. Our very own MJSA Vice President came back to Minnesota with the National Beef Production-Entrepreneurship Proficiency Award! This is what the news release from the National FFA had to say about Matt.

“Motivated by his parents to turn his small Simmental cattle herd into an enterprise, Matthew Pearson obtained a grant from the National FFA to grow his beef operation. Pearson’s supervised agricultural experience program consists of 38 registered Simmental and Crossbred beef cattle. To increase genetic soundness of his cattle, the Atwater Cosmos Grove City FFA member artificially inseminates all his cows, assuring customers that they are purchasing top-of-the-line cattle. Pearson hopes to make his Simmental operation nationally known while also pursuing a career as a large animal veterinarian.” Congratulations to all the juniors who received awards at the National FFA Convention!

As many of you already know the Simmental Breed was the featured breed for the Beef Expo. I have received a number of calls, and confronted personally, stating that it was well done. The comments were that the food was great, service was excellent and the hospitality was second to none. Those who assisted in this process, take a bow. Lastly, safe travels for everyone. Good luck to all who attend Louisville and Denver. I hope to see as many of you at the Annual Banquet in February.
