American Brahman Breeders Association Convention slated for November
HOUSTON - The American Brahman Breeders Association (ABBA) is currently planning its 2nd Annual Convention to be held November 16 and 17 at Moody Gardens Hotel and Spa in Galveston, Texas. The ABBA Convention is a beef industry focused event, open to both ABBA members and non-member cattlemen who have an interest in Brahman genetics. It will provide workshops and seminars for all ages and experience levels.
The ABBA is excited to announce its convention's highlighted seminar: Ranching for Profit. Dave Pratt, a nationally recognized lecturer with Ranch Management Consultants, will help attendees find ranching breakthroughs to increase profit, improve the health of the land, improve business relationships and increase overall ranching satisfaction.
Seminars on effective record keeping, online registry capabilities, challenges facing beef producers, understanding the end product, the ABBA F-1 Program, and adding value to cattle will also accompany the Ranching for Profit workshop.
As a bonus, those who attend sessions will receive one general Continuing Education Unit (CEU). Particular sessions will also provide participants with CEUs for the Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) program.
For the first time, breakout sessions will be provided for youth. These will feature information on the American Junior Brahman Association (AJBA), a leadership workshop, as well as an ag advocacy seminar presented by Texas A&M University's Farmer's Fight group. Included in the youth program is an opportunity for juniors to explore Moody Gardens Amusement Park.
For those interested in attending the 2013 ABBA Convention, preregistration is available until October 18 at a rate of $50, after which the price will increase to $100. Those who preregister will be entered to win a free two night stay at Moody Gardens Hotel and Spa during the event.
