The Brown Swiss Bulletin
The Brown Swiss Bulletin is the official publication of the Brown Swiss Cattle Breeders’ Association of the USA and has been published monthly since 1922. As of 2016, it is edited, published and distributed 11 times per year by Purebred Publishing of Columbus, Ohio. As a source of communication between the Association and the membership, The Bulletin features production, show and youth highlights, and keeps breeders informed of Association events. It is a key link in relaying information and updates from the national office and board of directors to the membership.
Written by the Executive Secretary/Office Staff, the Office Connection section informs the membership of recent board actions and encompasses the leadership stance on industry issues and the development of the breed and includes communication from the office.
Written by the Superintendent of Records, Records News updates breeders on the breed’s Registration, Classification, Production and Performance records processing. It also provides record keeping suggestions to improve database function and enhance accuracy of pedigree information received by the breed.
