FOCUS ON TBA MEMBERS
"Dedicated to promoting the Braunvieh Breed"
TBA has started a Dropbox to collect pictures for the 2019 calendar. These pictures will be used for advertisement in the calendar and possibly on the Texas Braunvieh Facebook page. We ask the pictures be ones that would represent the kids and the breed well, as they will be used for advertisement purposes. They also prefer them to be high resolution photos. The only people that can see these pictures are those with the link provided. We would appreciate everyone helping us find pictures for the new calendar, and please share with those not in this group. Here is the link. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/puswd739v8krf10/AADmMfJKKEsilmNKKjkEadi5a?dl=0
