SIMMENTAL - The end of an era
After twenty years of Simmental Cattle breeding, JBV IV realized it was time to make a change. On April 1-3, 1985 Diamond C Ranch sold over 700 head of Registered Simmentals in the Diamond C three day Triple Header sale. It wasn't a difficult business decision to disperse the Simmental herd and has proven to be the correct one, but losing the closeness of many good friends and associates who worked at the Diamond C and made it one of the most successful ranches in the world was extremely hard. However,it is very satisfying to see the number of Diamond C ranch 'crew' who are successful and play major roles at current dominate cattle ranches across the country.
