Beef “it’s what’s for dinner!”
We have all heard those famous words of Sam Elliott, but have you ever taken the time to perfect your beef culinary skills? During this workshop we will learn more about this protein-packed source, food safety, grilling tips and participants will prepare a steak lunch. Hosted by Casey Matzke, Texas Cattle Women.
Tour GKB Cattle
It was 1998 when Gary and Kathy Buchholz started GKB Cattle, but Gary’s love of cattle started as a young boy when he went to the local banker to buy his first 25 Angus cattle. Kathy, a fourth generation west-Texas cattle producer broke her first show heifer to lead to the house at 4th or 5thgrade. Their love of livestock, the land and youth can be seen across Texas and the nation. Sit back to enjoy the Hi-Point Ranch during your personal tour of the pastures and working facilities. Enjoy a ride on a luxury coach to see the Hereford, Brangus, Red Angus and Brahman herds and meet the team that makes the ranch thrive. Finish the event with a CHB steak with the GKB Team.
