1 t t t t t t We are extremely excited to host each of you for this amazing sale. The consignors dug deep into their breeding programs to consign what we feel is the best group of cattle we have put together in many years. We were blessed to have the Eddie Wood Sale last year, but are thrilled to once again be a part of the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. The Stock Show offers a great opportunity to showcase our breed in front of the general public and other livestock enthusiasts. The sale is starting with some amazing heifers and you will find many elite cows throughout the sale. It is our goal to provide a group of cattle that will meet the desires of every breeder. The quality of cattle has never been better and we are proud that we have consignments from breeders who specialize in show cattle to the best horn genetics available. This sale is the first sale of the year and is also the largest exposure opportunity for our amazing Texas Longhorns, being a part of the historic Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo in Fort Worth. We strive to bring all breeders together in an effort to utilize our talents and resources to market the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America and our amazing cattle to new buyers and the general public. We encourage all TLBAA members to participate in the Longhorn weekend. Please attend the Directors Meeting and the Annual General Membership meeting, along with the Hall of Fame and Year-End Awards Reception on Friday. You can also cheer on our youth at the TLBT youth show at noon on Sunday, January 16 in the Watt Arena. On Monday, January 17, in the historic coliseum the day begins at 9:00 am with the Open Haltered classes. They are followed by the Open Non-Haltered classes and the exciting Trophy Steers. The Eddie Wood Cowtown Classic is a great opportunity to start the year off with a bang! Again, we want to thank our consignors for some amazing animals to offer at public auction. Come join the fun and excitement with your TLBAA. Thank you for your participation and commitment to the TLBAA, our industry and our beautiful registered Texas Longhorn Cattle.
