  Whataburger a Most Deserving 2017 Beef Booster of the Year.
 L to R:  Mike Sobel, Whataburger Senior Vice President;
Jim Sartwelle, III, TBA President
  Whataburger, famous purveyors of amazing hamburgers, was
named the Texas Brahman Association’s 2017 Beef Booster
of the Year.  Since 1962, TBA has recognized a deserving
person or entity for outstanding contributions to the beef
industry and counts a distinguished list of industry doers,
thinkers, and leaders among its recipients.

TBA President Jim Sartwelle, III, said, “Most Texans can
recite at least part of the story of Whataburger. From its
founding by Harmon Dobson in Corpus Christi in 1950, this
family-owned business has presented a positive image that
extends to all beef products. All Texas ranchers benefit from
the positive beef business environment Whataburger fosters
through their unswerving promotion of our end product.”

The 56th Beef Booster of the Year Award was presented
during Texas A&M’s annual Beef Cattle Short Course in
College Station. Whataburger was represented by Mike Sobel,
Senior Vice President, who offered comments following the
