Brahman Country Genetics LLC, in collaboration with B.R. Cutrer, Inc. provides Brahman semen and embryos to thousands of Brahman breeders worldwide. It’s the people using our genetics and their success that drive us to move forward every day in a spirit of excellence.
To acknowledge the hard work and innovation of our customers, Brahman Country Genetics will be presenting five distinguished awards programs at the 2023 Brahman Days event in October.
Breeder of the Year
The Breeder of the Year award will recognize the most outstanding Brahman breeder in the world. The award is open to any Brahman breeder worldwide who is a customer of Brahman Country Genetics. The award will be based on overall merit of the operation, breeding program, leadership within the Brahman breed, participation in beef industry activities, and innovation within their herd.
Young Breeder of the Year
The Young Breeder of the Year award is open to customers of Brahman Country Genetics between the ages of 19 and 39 as of January 1 of the award year. Couples or business partners may be nominated together if all parties meet the age requirements.
Junior Breeder of the Year
The Junior Breeder of the Year award is open to customers of Brahman Country Genetics between the ages of birth to 18 as of January 1 of the award year.
Both of these awards will be selected based on the same criteria as the Breeder of The Year Award.
Brahman Ambassador of the Year
The Brahman Ambassador of the Year award will recognize an individual or business who positively promotes the Brahman breed at a global level.
Brahman Female of the Year and Brahman Sire of the Year
These awards will be presented to the owner of the most outstanding Brahman bull and female of the year that represent at least 50% Brahman Country Genetics bloodlines. This is not a show-based award, although show animals are eligible to apply. This award will be selected by the leadership team of Brahman Country Genetics and based on the individual merits of each animal. Factors to be considered include show ring accomplishments, progeny accomplishments, production records, and semen sales.
Circle of Excellence
Circle of Excellence Awards will be presented to Brahman breeders who represent the innovative spirit of Brahman Country Genetics. To qualify for this award, breeders must be a current client of Brahman Country Genetics (meaning made a qualifying purchase in the current award year or previous award year), must register their cattle in their respective breed associations, must participate in DNA verification, and must submit performance records on their cattle. These breeders represent the highest commitment to producing The Modern American Brahman.
Brahman 100 and Brahman 500
These awards will be presented to Brahman breeders worldwide who are investing in 100 units of semen or 500 units of semen from Brahman Country Genetics annually. This data will be calculated during the calendar year of January 1 to December 31 of the previous awards year.
Selection for all awards will be made by a panel of judges representing the beef industry.
Applications are due July 15, 2023 and will be presented in October 2023 at the Brahman Days workshop in Boling, Texas. For questions about these awards, contact Haleigh Carlile, BRC coordinator, at email@example.com.
