ASA Board of Trustees

Lanting Enterprises LLC

Bob Lanting was born and raised on a family farm on Hollister, ID, located in South Central Idaho, only 20 miles north of Nevada.  The family farm started in the 1940’s and has since tripled in size with the help of two brothers.  This high-desert region gets approximately 9 inches of annual rainfall, and is dependent on reservoir and deep wells for irrigation.

Lanting attended the University of Idaho and graduated with a B.S. degree in Animal Science. Bob is well-known on local, regional and national levels, having served many boards including school boards, state and local cattle organizations, Farm Service Agency, and the Cattlemen’s Beef Board.  Lanting was elected for two, three-year terms as a Trustee with the American Simmental Association  and is currently serving as Chairman of the Board.

Lanting Enterprises LLC has been a member of the ASA since 1974.  The operation consists of  330 Simmental and SimAngusTM  cows, and they market approximately 90 bulls annually through private treaty. The Lanting herd has been developed to fit their desert environment with emphasis on calving ease, performance, carcass, and mature cow size.
