As you are reading this month’s “From the Desk” column, we are now in 2021. I want to take this time to wish you all a very Happy New Year. We all know of the issues and obstacles we had in 2020, however, with a new year, we have a new start and let’s make 2021 the year of prosperity.
The office of the American Brahman Breeders Association is now officially in Bryan, Texas and we invite you all when you are in town to please stop by and say hi. As we packed the office in December there were a lot of emotions that came with packing an association that called Houston home for 96 years. We are hopeful that as we start year 97 of the ABBA, we will remember the past and look forward to the future and new beginnings. I want to take this time to thank all of the men and women that have blazed the trails for the ABBA, and have made it what it is today.
What’s new for ABBA in 2021? We will be involved in more research, gathering more data and sharing our story about Brahman Cattle around the world. We will also be involved in different shows due to the COVID pandemic and will be hosting some of our own. As I said many times in 2020, Brahman Breeders and Agriculturists are resilient people and we will work together to keep the ABBA strong.
I am excited to be hosting the Winter Board of Director and Committee meetings in College Station in January. We will have the meetings at the Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center on the campus of Texas A&M University January 22-23, 2021. We invite all members to take part in the meetings. You can find more information about the meeting locations and times at www.brahman.org.
We are also in the middle of our Board of Directors elections. You should have received your ballots in the mail in December and they are due back February 1, 2021.
In closing, please reach out to the office or myself if you ever have a question. Myself, as well as the office staff, looks forward to assisting our members in 2021, once again Happy New Year!!

See you Down the Road!!
