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 has been published 11 times per year. Effective with the July/August 2018 issue, The Brown Swiss Bulletin has been published by Dairy Agenda Today with 11 issues per year. Effective in 2023, the Brown Swiss Bulletin will be published 10 times per year (July/August and October/November will be combined).
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.
