Dedicated to preserving and promoting the American bison, the Texas Bison Association (TBA) announces it will host the 2013 Texas Bison Conference on May 3, 2013, and May 4, 2013, at the Radisson Forth Worth in Fort Worth, Texas. The two-day event will feature bison enthusiasts and producers from across the country and is the largest event in the Lone Star State dedicated to bison.
The annual TBA conference features informative seminars on bison handling, exhibitors from the bison and agriculture industries, and discussion among some of the industry’s top bison experts. The event also will include a fun ‘Buffalo Banquet’ that provides attendees with a bison steak dinner, networking and live and silent fund-raising auctions. There will also be a fun hayride at the nearby Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge.
“The Texas Bison Conference is the biggest bison event in the state, and we’re very excited to welcome bison enthusiasts from all parts of the country,” says Charles Addington II, president for the Texas Bison Association. “Bison ranching is fun and profitable, and bison meat is in very high demand today. There is no other animal that inspires conservation, creates commercial opportunities and unites Americans like the bison. It’s an honor and a privilege to work toward preserving and promoting these magnificent animals.”
The Texas Bison Association is a nonprofit organization founded in 1994 by bison owners and individuals concerned with the preservation and promotion of the American bison. Today, the TBA provides assistance in raising and producing bison and promotes the nutritional health aspects of bison to consumers.
Bison meat is very lean, healthy option — containing less calories and cholesterol than either beef or chicken. In addition, bison meat is more non-allergenic and digestible than most other meats and is a delicious alternative for people who want to improve their diet without giving up red meat.
