Texas Bison Association Fall Meeting – Canyon, TX

November 4 - 5, 2022 - Texas Bison Association Fall Meeting - Canyon, TX.

If you are in the meat business or looking at getting involved in meat sales. We have put together a solid agenda that will make the trip worthwhile.  
 We are also keeping the registration fee low ($50 per person) to help offset the increased price of gas.  
Friday: For folks that can arrive to the Panhandle early, you can join us in Goodnight for a visit to the Charles & Mary Ann Goodnight home and to Cecil Miskin's Herd Wear store. 
Friday evening social event will be taking place at the Fairly Group Club in the WTAMU football stadium. 
Saturday: We start with a visit to a new, Texas State Inspected, Meat Processor in Canyon that processes bison.  While there we will talk about carcass conformation, meat cuts, tenderizing, packaging, etc.  After visiting the Meat Processor, we will go to the Herdsmen Barn on the campus of West Texas A&M, for lunch followed by a discussion on the requirements to sell bison meat from your ranch, farmers markets, within Texas and shipping outside of Texas.  We have the awesome opportunity to visit Sidney Blankenship's bison ranch. If you prefer not to travel to Sidney's ranch, you can stay in town to visit the Plains Museum, Palo Duro Canyon, shop in downtown Canyon or just relax.  After visiting with Sidney, we return to the WTAMU campus for dinner and socialization.  
And since you are in the area... you have the opportunity to visit Caprock Canyon and the official bison herd of Texas.  If you have not visited Caprock or seen the herd, I strongly encourage you make a visit, no matter how brief.
