The TBA is proud to introduce our very first state ambassador Lauren Bockel. Be watching here for some updates from her every month and for making appearances at different events that we hold.
It is an honor to be the first ambassador representing the Texas Braunvieh Association!!! I grew up around agriculture and come from a family of farmers and ranchers. I started showing commercial cattle when I was eight years old. I purchased my first Purebred heifer in 2012. I started showing Braunvieh in March of 2019. I now have seven Braunvieh heifers and will continue to raise cattle throughout my life.
"My goals as an ambassador" are to educate more commercial breeders on the great qualities the Braunvieh breed has to offer. Advertisement is a huge assent to any market and I plan to spread the word that the Braunvieh breed SHOULD BE one of the most desired breeds in the cattle industry. They are dual purpose cattle. They produce so much milk they can take on two calves if needed, and they will because they are so maternal. You can breed your Braunvieh heifers at an early age due to the fact that they are extremely fertile. They have one of the best carcasses in the world! Put a few Braunvieh cows with your bull and you’ll notice how much size and muscle it will add!

The 2020 Texas Braunvieh Association State Junior Show was held July 3-5, 2020 at the J.S. Bridwell Agriculture Center, Wichita Falls, Texas. Entries included 44 exhibitors from 5 states with 99 livestock entries. Merle Newton did a Rodear America Cowdog Association demonstration with a working cowdog. Contests included Photography, Creative Writing, Salesmanship, Illustrated Talk, Skillathon, and Quiz Bowl. This show was a success due to many sponsors that helped provide awards, food and events.

That’s a wrap!!! 2020 Texas Braunvieh State Show.
After four days in the “tropical paradise” of Wichita Falls Texas I just really felt compelled to express to everyone involved how really blessed we were to have had such a tremendous show.
I won’t make this as long a post as it really needs to be.
A truly heartfelt thank you to the hard working volunteers of the show committee, our volunteers that stood in the heat preparing home cooked meals, for all that pitched in, big or small jobs, we couldn’t have done it without you!! Bottom line is no matter how prepared you are there is no show without contestants. Thank y’all for sticking with us, showing up in such uncertain times and making the show worth all the hard work!! Looking forward to doing it all over again next year, as always the plan is to see the show become bigger and better each year.
David Hall, President TBA
