The World Brahman Congress has selected Fort Worth, Texas as their host location for their 2008 international event. This will be the 14th annual congress since 1982 and marks only the second time for the event to be held in the United States.
The weeklong event is set for May 18-24 and is expected to draw over 1,200 head of Brahman cattle and 3,000 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.
The event will be held on the grounds of the Southwestern Livestock Exposition and Rodeo and downtown at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel.
The World Brahman Congress brings Brahman breeders from across the globe together every two years to exchange ideas, genetics, share information and provide a platform to further promote Brahman cattle.
The event is being coordinated by the American Brahman Breeders Association, headquartered in Houston, Texas with Dr. Kevin Bryant, a breeder from the Dallas area as the chairman for this prestigious event.
Past locations include Rockhampton, Australia; Houston, Texas; Johannesburg, Republic of South Africa; Cartagena, Colombia; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Veracruz, Mexico; Panama City, Panama; Maracaibo, Venezuela; Pereira, Colombia; Pretoria, South Africa; Merida Yucatan, Mexico; and Medellin, Colombia.
