Mississippi Hereford/Brahman F-1 Field Day


F-1 Field DayHouston: The American Brahman Breeders Association and the American Hereford Association along with their Mississippi affiliates will jointly host a field day at the Smith County Ag Complex in Raleigh, Mississippi on Saturday, September 25th.  The Field Day will start at 9 am and will provide an opportunity for beef cattle producers to hear and learn of the new era version of the age old Brahman x Hereford F1 cross.

This will be the first time these two breeds have joined forces in the Magnolia State to promote the superiority of this popular cross.  An outstanding program and meal are being planned that will tell of the #1 Southern Cross.  Industry authorities will be assembled to discuss what the F1 contributes to the beef world, how to produce her, use her, handle her and market her and her offspring.  In addition, ABBA will tell of their F1 Certification Program that insures the integrity of those F1’s produced under their program of excellence.

The Field Day program will begin at 9 am and conclude at 2:45 pm and include a free noon meal and viewing of cattle. The field day is being jointly sponsored by the American Brahman Breeders Association, American Hereford Association, Mississippi Brahman Breeders Association, Mississippi Hereford Association, Smith County Cooperative Extension Service and several industry partners.
