Executive Sales

Brian Melloan told the board that he and Mike Green had attended the Florida Cattleman’s National Convention on the behalf of SEBBA and made many contacts with commercial breeders. They got several hundred addresses and email to contact for SEBBA’s Florida Performance Bull Sale. They gave away a rifle as a door prize.

Nomination Committee

Jerry Thomas presented the slate of new Board Members: Brock Clay will fill out the term of Glenn Long and a three year term for the remaining members of Justin Williams, Steve Emmons, Richard Thrasher and Melaine Hardwick.


Ronnie Teague asked the group for things we could do that would help us finance JBBA. Steve Emmons suggested we sell some semen and that is what we did raising $3625. That should make us sound for a couple of years. The following breeders donated and many thanks to them. Mackie Bounds, Emmons Ranch, Channarock Farm, Neal Hiatt, Clark Jones, Sheldon McManus, Steven Anderson, and Bailey & Dodds. Thanks to the breeders who purchased the semen.

Michael Buckley was awarded $1000 from Hoss Shaw Scholarship.

We honored our Board Members rolling off and thanked them for their help over the last three years.

Brock Clay, Billy Richerhazen, Steve Emmons and Justin Williams.

SEBBA presented the following awards:

  • New Breeders of Year—Brian, Becca & Garret Melloan
  • Member of the Year—Melaine Hardwick
  • Breeders of Year—Jerry, Tammy & Taylor Thomas
