Ian and Anne Galloway of Duarran, Roma, Stephen Lill of Chadwick Downs, Coonabarabran and Mark and Amanda Salisbury of Bimbadeen, Eidsvold all attended the Houston Livestock Show.


“We were delighted with the response of American Brangus breeders  – all were enthusiastic about our event and a great many indicated they were very keen to make the trip to Australia to take part,” said Mr Galloway, who is the Chairman of the World Congress Committee for the Australian Brangus Cattle Association.


The delegation addressed crowds at two major Brangus events at the Houston Livestock Show – the Elite Genetics Sale and also the Global Roundup, each of which saw more than 200 breeders in attendance.


Invitations were also handed out at the International Lounge which hosts Livestock Show visitors from countries outside the USA.   The group also took in the enormous scale of the Houston event which also hosts nightly concerts and rodeos, runs for almost three weeks every year, and is touted as the ‘Biggest in America’.


“It was amazing to see how well-organised the Americans were with the entire Houston event – we have lots of ideas but are also reassured that we have the cattle and the host event to match it with them,” said Brangus Congress marketing officer, Amanda Salisbury.


The World Brangus Congress will in Rockhampton from May 7-11 in 2012, tying in with Beef Australia 2012.


The event will offer all Brangus breeders (both stud and commercial) a chance to gather with inter-state and international cattlemen and women, to see the best of the breed in one place and to take part in a series of informative and social events.
