“The theme for the first RGV Brahman & F-1 Associaton Field Day was education, association involvement and scholarships. The event was held on May 4th and was hosted by the RGV President Mike England and his family at their farm near Mercedes, Texas. It was dedicated to his late ag teacher, mentor and fellow Brahman breeder Pete Abrigo whose family was on hand to coordinate the silent auction which raised over $6,000 to kick off the RGV Scholarship fund and add to the Pete Abrigo Memorial Scholarship Fund. We want to THANK all of the donors, bidders, buyers and field day participants ” states Carlos X. Guerra.

“The weather was perfect for a great crowd of both young and old Brahman breeders, Brahman juniors, Brahman enthusiasts, commercial producers and their families from Texas, Louisiana and Mexico. The food was provided by the Valley's own Benny and James Cano who together with their families served up a delicious Brahman carne guisada with authentic Pan de Campo. The Canos are big time supporters of our youth and are always VOLUNTEERING to help. Several RGV breeders had top quality Brahman (mostly polled) and F-1 cattle on display in the same barn and pens that Crickett England's family has used for their Brahman cattle for the past 60 years” added Guerra.
