  American Brahman Breeders Association Executive Vice President Chris Shivers of Houston was named the Texas Brahman Association’s 2016 Beef Booster of the Year.  Since 1962, the TBA has recognized a deserving person or entity for outstanding contributions to the beef industry and counts a distinguished list of industry leaders, doers, and thinkers among its recipients.

TBA President Jim Sartwelle, III, said, “Chris Shivers is a most deserving recipient of this year’s award for outstanding leadership and service to the industry. He has worked for all of us in the cattle industry, not just Brahman breeders, throughout his career at ABBA.”

TBA recognized Shivers’ record of accomplishment at ABBA, centered around the industry-leading F1 female certification program, a large and active American Junior Brahman Association, and a robust and expanding research and breed improvement effort.

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.
