Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo

Posted by

The time has come and gone already this year, for an exciting week at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. This time of year, we expect lots of visitors, both from the US and foreign countries. We definitely were not lacking in that this year! We welcomed many groups from all over the world. We hosted a group of 30 from Australia that were such a delight to have. They even brought us cookies and chocolate from Australia- those didn't last long in our office! We gave tours to groups from Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil, and many other places. It is always such an interesting time to get to meet new people from all over the world, and also to listen to their stories. We have several pictures on our facebook account with some of the groups.

We also had a very good time in Houston. We have a booth set up every year that enables us to talk to many people and have lots of goodies to give away. Houston is always such a busy week, with many sales, shows and events lined up to get to. Many new people stopped by our booth, or we got to talk to at the various events, and we look forward to talking to all of them soon.

After Houston is always a busy time, and this year proved that trend. We have had many trailers in and out of here every day, We have gotten several really good bulls to collect semen on, and we are working diligently to ensure that each one gets the highest quality semen in the industry.

Whether you are from around the world, or just down the road, we always welcome you to come take a tour of our facility and look at the bulls we are housing for collection.
