In an effort to give more members a voice in the evaluation of IBBA national and regional shows as well as IBBA approved judges, the IBBA has created an IBBA show survey. The survey, available for download and online at gobrangus.com/member, allows exhibitors and spectators to give their opinions on any recent IBBA national or regional Brangus show. The survey should be submitted within 30 days of the show in order for the show committee to accurately take all opinions into consideration. All completed surveys should be returned to IBBA Director of Shows Tyler Dean at the information listed at the bottom of the survey. Questions should also be directed to Tyler at (405) 867-1421 or by email.
