Welcome to Cowtown!

Last week, Drew and I attended the 2013 Fort Worth Stock Show Simmental Open Show in preparations for the 2014 National Show. You may or may not know that in 2014 the National Simmental Show and Sale will be held in Fort Worth, Texas in conjunction with their stock show. It was previously held in Cowtown (Fort Worth) in 2009.

In 2009, the sun was shining brightly in Texas and Simmental breeders from all across the U.S. attended the Fort Worth Stock Show to participate in the National Show and Sale. We managed an event called “The Cowtown Classic” sale which was held in this huge sales arena. The sale was a great success. The show a couple hundred entries, and was highly competitive. Did I mention it was sunny and mild…in January/February?

The National Simmental events for 2014 will be held January 29-February 2nd in Fort Worth. We will be having a sale on February 1st along with two great days of shows and some other neat events. Fort Worth is a great city filled with a lot of great history surrounding the cattle industry. You can venture down to the old Fort Worth Stockyards where there are lots of great restaurants, shops, nightlife, and where they still drive cattle down the cobble streets. If you haven’t ever been to Fort Worth before, go ahead and get your planner out and open it 2014. Just go ahead and pencil the Stock Show because it will definitely be a good time and a great showcase for Simmental genetics.

 

 

For the 2014 Cowtown Classic we are looking for consignments from Purebred, Percentage, Simbrah, and Fullblood breeders. If you would like more information please do not hesitate to give us a call. It is never too early to begin thinking ahead about your consignments to great events like this!
