We’re back from Houston, Texas, and the 2015 International Brahman Show. According to the American Brahman Breeders Association (ABBA), this 32nd show was one for the record books. It was held March 2-6 at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, and $247,500 was spent in 14 lots which set a new record for average price per head at $17,678.57. Ten lots in the ABBA Brahman Semen Sale sold for $14,500. We’re very proud, and excited, at the growth of the Brahman breed, and the continuing advancements in Brahman Breeding.
