ABBA E.A.R Program and Bull Development and Marketing Program Postponed until January 2023

The American Brahman Breeders Association Research and Breed Improvement Committee takes great pride in offering programs to our membership that help improve the Brahman breed and allow for the collection of valuable research data.

 The ABBA Bull Development & Marketing Program is designed to provide Brahman breeders with the opportunity to develop bulls, collect economically relevant data and market commercially oriented bulls in a cooperative effort. While the E.A.R. Program is a comprehensive feeding evaluation of Brahman genetics from a purebred and percentage standpoint, with all individuals being traceable to known Brahman lines. This program is designed to allow ABBA and Brahman breeders to maintain an understanding of how their genetics perform within the Beef industry.

The Research and Breed Improvement committee has made the decision to postpone both the E.A.R. Program and Bull Development and Marketing Program until January 2023. The Research & Breed Improvement Committee took an intense look into the guidelines over the past 6 months in order to clarify language and continually improve the programs to make them the best they can possibly be.

Due to the cancellation of the January meetings, the new and improved guidelines were not able to be approved through committee until the committee meetings just prior to the International Show in Houston. After careful consideration and much thought, the decision has been made to postpone the programs until January 2023 in order to better advertise the programs to the membership, inform participants of the new changes, allow for more availability of cattle, and keep consistent dates for steer harvest and the bull sale. Please monitor our website for updated information regarding the programs.

If you have any questions regarding the 2023 programs, please contact HC Neel, IV at hcneel@brahman.org, or Todd Schindler at texastireandaccessory@gmail.com.
