Virtual Workshop in 2020!
BRC invites you to their annual Brahman Days Workshop, the largest Brahman educational event in the USA! This workshop will be held virtually this year, due to Covid-19, but is definitely set to be one of the best we’ve ever had!
Each year, we work very hard to secure nationally acclaimed beef industry educators and speakers to “create that spark” in Brahman breeders minds and ignite their passion. This workshop is for anyone who is craving more Brahman information, wants to be a better Brahman breeder, and wants to be in touch with the overall beef industry.
As always, we offer 2 complimentary registrations to any BRC / Brahman Country Genetics customer from September 2018 to present. This is our way of saying “THANK YOU” for being a customer. We realize that our customers share a strong vision for improvement, and this is our way of giving back. If you are a BRC customer, simply RSVP here. We will email you your conference login as it gets closer.
Workshop registration is also open to the public!
- Early registration is open now, and $149 per person. Get your tickets here!
- Late registration starts October 16 and will be $199 per person. Get your tickets here!
How A Virtual Workshop Works
Virtual workshops have been really popular in 2020 as they allow for you to attend lots of events without having the travel expense, or even having to leave your home/office.
- All sessions will initially be broadcast live via Zoom (a free software), at the designated times on the mornings of October 29 and 30.
- These sessions will be recorded.
- About a week after the workshop, the recorded presentations will also be posted on a special site, where you can login with your own user name and password and re-watch the videos if you want to watch them again, or if you missed them the first time.
- You will be able to watch the sessions for up to 1 year after this workshop.
