The World Brahman Congress is coming to the United States and specifically to Cowtown, May 18-24th. The event will be held on the grounds of the Southwestern Livestock Exposition and Rodeo, who have joined as title sponsors of the international event.
“We are pleased to bring Brahman breeders worldwide to Fort Worth and very excited that the officials of the Southwestern Livestock Exposition and Rodeo have joined as a title sponsor. We are looking forward to having Brahman breeders from more than 22 countries at the Congress,” remarked Dr. Kevin Bryant, World Brahman Congress chairperson.
The 14th annual event, marks only the second time the Congress has been held in the United States, as it was here in 1984.
The week long event is expected to draw over 1,200 head of Brahman cattle and 3,500 Brahman breeders and enthusiasts from 20 plus countries. In addition to cattle and conversation, there will be technical seminars, a trade show, receptions, tours and a sale of elite genetics.
In addition to events at the Fort Worth Stock Show, the Renaissance Worthington Hotel will serve as the headquarters and site for some of the events.
The event is being coordinated by the American Brahman Breeders Association, headquartered in Houston, Texas, who can be contacted at 713/349-0861 for additional information.
