9:10 a.m. – Inspiring a New Generation of Agriculture, Damion K. Turner
Damion Turner is the host of the very popular ‘Shades of Agriculture” podcast, and he’s here to share the store of how agriculture is changing, and that’s a good thing. Learn motivational strategies to grow, change, and adjust to keep your operation on the path to success. 

10:00 a.m. – “Being an Outlier in the Brahman Business” –  Brandon Cutrer, BRC

Not everyone is going to be a success in the Brahman business. Sadly, a lot of breeders don’t even make it 5 years. Brandon Cutrer discusses how to build the elusive program of success in the Brahman business: a long lasting, profitable, happy ranching operation that will be remembered for generations to come. He’ll discuss the key decisions and factors that impact a Brahman breeders bottom line and long term success. And, if you’re not on the right track now, how to turn your program around. 

11:00 a.m. – “Where Do You Want To Be In 10 Years” – Rachel Cutrer, BRC
Many Brahman breeders have a vision of expanding, adding more cattle, and achieving higher sales prices in the next five to ten years. But, how do you do it? BRC is a shining example that new brands, and new breeders can make it in the Brahman business if you do things the right way. Rachel will explain the basics of pricing your cattle, determining value on cattle you may purchase, building a long-lasting brand in a sea of short term fads, and how operations can effectively market their cattle whether they’re new or old, large or small. 

Lunch by Brahman Country Beef

12:45 p.m. – “Understanding DNA and It’s Role in Pedigrees, EPDs and Selection” – Dr. Matt Spangler
Dr. Matt Spangler of the University of Nebraska Lincoln returns to Brahman Days for an informative overview of beef cattle genetics and selection. He will focus on DNA, pedigrees, genetic selection tools, and breed improvement. Dr. Spangler is one of the world’s leading animal scientists and it’s always a honor to hear his game-changing presentations. 

1:45 p.m. – “Selecting The Modern Brahman: Cattle With a Show Look Who Are Still Functionally Efficient” – Keaton Dodd, BRC
Everyone dreams of breeding a champion but what happens after the show is over? Hot genetics and fads change, but functional, efficient cattle are long term staples of success. Keaton Dodd shares the BRC strategy for breeding performance cattle with the look that consistently wins in the show ring. This session will help you understand how to judge cattle, see structural differences, and understand why certain traits are more important than others. Keaton will also share insights into integrity and ethics in the show ring. 

4:00 p.m. – Tours and Hands On Demonstrations at BRC 
The BRC team will provide hands on demonstrations on cattle judging (Keaton Dodd), a tour of our show barn, and a cattle working demonstration by Brandon Cutrer and the BRC team including branding, cattle working, collecting DNA, processing and more. For those who wish to stay in the air conditioning, visit us at The Ranch Downtown for light snacks and drinks.
