Youth to receive grants

An elementary student and a college senior each received honors from Colorado Simmental Association. During the Nov. 21, 2020 annual meeting on Zoom, CSA Pres. Jay Hill virtually presented the CSA Youth Herd Builder Grant to Colbie Bruna of Cheraw, and the CSA Youth Education Grant to Sydney Baty of Loveland.  

CSA Youth Herd Builder Grant
Colbie BrunaThe CSA Herd Builder grant is an expanded CSA program to help young cattle enthusiasts build their own cowherd. For the inaugural year, CSA offered a $1,500 boost for Colbie Bruna to purchase a SimGenetics female from a Colorado breeder.
          Bruna, age 10, began 4-H with a market steer. This past year, he expanded to competing in both market and breeding beef at shows throughout the region. “I have a percentage Simmental heifer that I showed all summer… and I want to get more heifers like Gabby and show them a lot and love them too. I think Simmental cattle are awesome,” Bruna wrote on his application. “I want to be able to raise my own cattle and start showing all my home-raised cows.”

I think Simmental cattle are awesome,” Bruna wrote on his application. “I want to be able to raise my own cattle and start showing all my home-raised cows.”
Bruna is a hard-working young man, wrote Frank Wiseman of La Junta. “He is very interested in the agricultural lifestyle and is exposed to farming and ranching daily. Whenever I get the chance to talk to Colbie, he tells me about his cattle. His dedication to his beef projects has grown each year.”
“I have been very impressed with how much he has grown as a showman and cattleman,” said another reference, Regan Gittlein, a breeder from Nebraska who watched him show at jackpots and Aksarben. “He has the work ethic and drive necessary to be successful in the cattle industry.”




CSA Youth Herd Builder Grant
          Sydney Baty will be awarded to CSA Education Grant. The 21-year-old is scheduled to complete her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science Production at Texas Tech University in May 2021, with an eye on a large animal reproduction masters and doctoral programs to follow. 
          Baty will be given a $500 stipend toward next semester’s education expenses. She is a member of Sigma Alpha Lambda, a national leadership and honors organization. During her lifetime, Baty has been involved in academic and livestock pursuits, including raising and exhibiting Boer goats and Simmental cattle.
          She has helped with flushing and artificially inseminating (AI) both goats and cattle through her family’s Baty Livestock operation at Loveland, and she has exhibited Sydney Batyboth species on the national level. Baty served on the Junior American Boer Goat Association board and has helped coordinate numerous activities.
At the 2020 American Junior Simmental National Classic, she was second overall in accumulated points, losing the overall title and Swiss bell by a single point. She showed the reserve overall percentage heifer in the bred-and-owned show, and third and sixth overall purebred in the owned show. Baty also was fifth overall in senior showmanship and second overall in the livestock judging contest.
Her resume includes being on the livestock judging teams at Northeastern Junior College and Texas Tech University. At Tech, the honors have included being on the High Overall Team at the National Western Stock Show senior college contest, third overall team at San Antonio, and high individual in swine judging at San Antonio, plus ranking at other contests.
“Sydney has excellent leadership and communication skills, in addition to a strong and competitive spirit. I recommend Sydney based on her approach and competitiveness in showing and judging livestock, and her work ethic, along with a true passion for knowledge relating to the livestock industry,” wrote reference Ashley R. Judge, former Oklahoma State assistant livestock judging coach. “Sydney is a hard worker, very goal oriented, and talented in anything that she does.”
          Another reference, Jeannie Yardley Griswold also of Oklahoma, wrote: “Sydney is the kind of person that doesn’t have to be in the spotlight, but the longer you know her the brighter she shines. She works to be at the top of her game in everything she does from showing, to academics. She is self-driven and self-motivated, with plenty of natural talent.”
“Her work ethic and drive is reflective in her studies scholastically and her achievements in school and extra-curricular activities,” Griswold concluded. “She has excelled in everything she has done from showing cattle, to FFA, anything she puts her mind to she does her best.”
          Baty said her “passion has been to learn how to do laparoscopic AI’s and flushing with small ruminants. Lately, I have wanted to find new, more effective ways to synchronize females, super ovulate donors, implanting of embryos, and also the freezing and sorting process for semen.”


Youth at AJSA National Classic


Colorado had five youth at the 2020 American Simmental Junior National Classic, which was moved to South Dakota due to COVID.

Our congratulations to CJSA member Sydney Baty, who garnered several awards at the July 11-16 Classic.
