Dear BPG Members,
Our 2015 show season ended with a bang at the State Fair of Louisiana. All of our fall shows had great attendance and made an awesome statement for Beefmaster cattle. Now, we look ahead to our next lineup of shows.
Fort Worth Livestock Show--November 15
San Antonio Livestock Show--December 15
Houston Livestock Show--January 5
Be sure and get your entries in. We want to show up in force and let these livestock shows know what great Beefmaster cattle are! Please remember that in San Antonio, we will come in on Thursday, not Friday, so hopefully we can avoid some of the stresses we had last year.
Our year end banquet will be held on Monday, January 18, 2016 in Fort Worth. This will be the night before we show on Tuesday, January 19. More details later on this. Just mark your calendars and be ready to have a good time.
Another "thank you" goes out to our buckle sponsors at the West Texas Fair:
The Reese Tassin Family
Rafter G Bar--Mike, Rachel and Emily Griffith
The Mike Wrobleski Family
We will need 4 buckle sponsors for our Fort Worth Show. The cost of the buckles is $110. Please let me know if you would like to support BPG and sponsor a buckle.
Don't forget about your consignments to the International Beefmaster Gala Sale in Houston on Saturday, March 5. Our sale will be in the Main Arena where it will attract many more prospects. Please get those consignments sent in to Bruce Robbins. Encourage consignments from other members. Word of mouth means a lot, so spread the word. This is your sale--your chance to showcase your products. Over 1 million people attend the Houston Livestock Show. Elgin Breeding Service will be hosting a party prior to the sale encouraging a festive atmosphere for our International guests. Our commission is low and our average has been high. We look forward to helping you achieve your marketing goals with your show cattle. Please contact with myself or Bruce Robbins with any questions.
See ya at the shows,
