Brahman Days Workshop
Friday, October 15, 2021
Boling Community Center, Boling, Texas
Forget “Take On Me” – it’s time to “Take on Brahmans” at the 2021 Brahman Days Workshop! If you’re wondering why all the neon colors, it’s because this year’s headlining band is the amazing Spazmatics, a wildly popular 80s cover band that will have everyone out of their seats and having a great time! We’re so excited, we’ve adopted an 80s theme for the entire workshop! Hey, why not! Let’s make it fun! No, you don’t have to wear neon high tops, cowboy hats and boots are still welcome!
This workshop is the nation’s largest and most comprehensive Brahman workshop & social event of the year! This year’s speakers will “Blind You With Science” but still keep it real including keynote presentations, real talk, hands on demonstrations on cattle working, branding, and show cattle management and more. Plus, if you’re “Hungry Like the Wolf” you’ll for sure enjoy our Fall “Evening at the Ranch” Farm to Table Dinner featuring Brahman Country Beef briskets and sausage.
Registration is limited so sign up today to reserve your spot for a ranch-changing event!
