2018 Deep South Field Day

The Deep South Brahman Association Educational
Field Day was held at K Bar Farms, owned by Carolyn Falgout, in Tylertown, Mississippi on August 18, 2018.
The event was hugely successful with more than 80 Brahman enthusiasts in attendance from Mississippi, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama and Florida.
Former ABBA Executive Vice President Chris Shivers was the Master of ceremonies.
Presentations and demonstrations featured cutting-edge industry leaders.
The day started with grass expert Mike McCormick discussing soil samples. Dennis Ware discussed several important topics ranging from water to rotational grazing, fencing and minerals. Bud Spencer gave a hoof trimming demonstration and the crowd was delighted to hear from LeAnne of the Mississippi Cattlemen’s Association and Alex Lowery of the Mississippi Farm Bureau.
Of course, K Bar Farms is known for their southern hospitality and provided a great lunch for everyone in attendance.
Following the meal, Seth Maxie discussed halter breaking. Then, Val Walters and Rodney Finch hosted a showmanship clinic. Dr. Tiger Hulsey and Dr. Craig Fontenot discussed deworming and vaccination protocols. Chance Hinton presented on dehorning cattle, and Charlie Ciolino of Star Power and Equipment wrapped up the presentations with a discussion of Field Maintenance.
At the end of the day, the President of the Louisiana Brahman Association, K Bar’s own Clint Galiano, took visitors on ranch tours of the scenic Tylertown division of K Bar Farms.
