Upcoming Events and News
The 2015 annual meeting of the Texas Brahman Association will be held in air-conditioned comfort at the Burleson County Fairgrounds in Caldwell on Saturday, August 29, from 3 pm to 6 pm. This year’s field day program is hosted by the purebred Brahman and F1 breeders of Burleson County. The program will be a video tour of the sponsoring breeders’ ranches produced by Cattle in Motion. Following that presentation, we’ll proceed to the TBA Annual Meeting and complete the afternoon with dinner, provided courtesy of our sponsors. Plan to attend, and encourage your fellow Brahman and F1 breeders in your area to attend. Will be a great afternoon of fellowship, education, and being about the business of promoting the Brahman breed here in the Lone Star State. Check back soon for a full schedule of activities.
July 22-25 saw a barn full of Brahman cattle and enthusiastic junior exhibitors at the Brazos County Expo Center in Bryan.  This year’s TJBA State Show marked the 40th anniversary of the founding of the TJBA and was the 40th state show (dating to 1975 and 1976, respectively). New additions to the offering of events and activities this year were a poster contest, photography contest, F1 heifer show, and two family fun nights that were all widely enjoyed. 

Nearly 100 exhibitors showed a total of 122 grey females, 76 red heifers, 44 bulls, and 8 head of F1 females (exactly 250 head walked through the show arena). Also, for the first time the Bred and Owned show which was conducted separately from the regular show classes. In all, there were 36 B&O females and 15 B&O bulls. Our thanks go out to all parents and other adults responsible for their exhibitors participating, as well as to all Texas Brahman breeders who sponsored classes, contests, and meals.
