Executive Vice President

American Simmental Association

Wade Shafer grew up in Detroit Lakes, MN, on Shoestring Ranch, a small seedstock operation. Shafer completed his Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science at North Dakota State University, followed by a Master’s and Doctorate in Animal Breeding and Genetics from Colorado State University.

While at Colorado State, Shafer did extensive work in the area of bio-economic simulation modeling. Following his formal education, he expanded Shoestring Ranch to more than 500 cows, with cooperator herds representing another 500+ cows. The ranch sold up to 200 bulls annually.

After selling his cow herd, Shafer joined the Simmental team as the Director of Breed Improvement for the American Simmental Association (ASA) in 2003; in 2011, he accepted the position of ASA’s Chief Operations Officer. Since 2013, Dr. Shafer has served as Executive Vice President of the American Simmental Association.
