Discover the best of beef with the new Texas Beef Council digital pass

AUSTIN – The Texas Beef Council (TBC) and its consumer-facing brand, Beef Loving Texans, are launching the “Ultimate Beef Trail” digital pass, a comprehensive guide to the best beef dishes in the Lone Star State. The pass celebrates and showcases Texas’ diverse culinary landscape, highlighting restaurants that offer exceptional beef experiences. The program runs from June 1 to October 31.

Individuals who download the Ultimate Beef Trail on their mobile devices and then check-in at participating restaurants can win prizes including stickers, bandanas, canvas bags, t-shirts, hats and cups. Participants will also have a chance to win the grand prize: two tickets to the Ultimate Beef Loving Texans Smoke Lab, a beef smoking class and a weekend getaway in Austin. The Ultimate Beef Trail builds on the success of last year’s “BBQuest – Take on Texas BBQ” pass, which encouraged people to experience delicious BBQ at the restaurants featured throughout all three seasons of TBC’s hit streaming series goods.

“Texas has so many wonderful restaurants, all with their own unique flavor and atmosphere,” said Adriana Mora, TBC’s consumer marketing manager. “Last year we enjoyed introducing Texans to the restaurants at BBQuest, and we knew we wanted to create another fun experience to encourage beef lovers – from city dwellers to beef producers and everyone in between – to enjoy more of the delicious beef meals to try. Texas restaurants have to offer.”

Earlier in 2024, TBC asked all beef-loving Texans to nominate their favorite restaurants, giving them the opportunity to be included in the Ultimate Beef Trail. TBC received more than 600 restaurant nominations, demonstrating the passion Texans around the world feel for their favorite diners, bistros, cafes and barbecue joints. TBC will promote the pass on social media, at events and to targeted groups, including the Texas Beef Team. Several food and travel influencers will also be spreading the word on their own social media platforms.

Dr. Bo A. Brock receives an outstanding alumni award from the Texas A&M Veterinary School

Dr. Bo A. Brock, owner of Brock Veterinary Clinic, was honored as an outstanding alumni by the Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences for his notable contributions to the field of veterinary medicine.

Brock is one of five Texas A&M University graduates recognized in 2024 by the school they graduated from for their dedication to improving the world. Brock has played a role in shaping the future of veterinary medicine since graduating at the top of his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine class from Texas A&M University in 1990.

He began his veterinary career at a mixed animal clinic in Clarendon, Texas, and in 1992 he pursued his lifelong goal of opening a high-end equine practice in West Texas when he purchased a clinic consisting of a few buildings in Lamesa. He transformed those buildings into the Brock Veterinary Clinic and began serving the rural community, with 750 active clients in his first year. Today, the clinic has more than 39,000 active clients, sees more than 10,000 horses annually, employs 11 veterinarians and serves patients from 2,300 zip codes.

“When Dr. Brock first founded the clinic, he had a dream to create one of the best equine veterinary clinics in Texas,” said one nominator. “Today, Brock Veterinary Clinic serves as one of the most popular equine clinics in the West Texas and Eastern New Mexico areas. People will travel hours to seek the care Dr. Brock and his clinic provide.”

Brock’s passion for veterinary medicine has inspired countless young people with veterinary ambitions. He has opened his practice doors to more than 500 students from around the world and has mentored more than 40 trainees in his three decades of veterinary service. His passion for connecting with others eventually led Brock to write and publish Crowded in the Middle of Nowhere, a humorous book about the life of a small-town veterinarian, which has sold approximately 100,000 copies since its publication in 2007. copies have been sold. has published a monthly column for DVM 360, the leading magazine for private practice veterinarians, and for the American Quarter Horse Journal, with a circulation of over 220,000 copies.

Brock lives in Lamesa on a 50-acre vineyard where he and his wife of 37 years, Kerri, raised three daughters and now enjoy the company of their seven grandchildren. When Brock isn’t at the vet clinic, he’s fly fishing in Colorado on the property he bought with proceeds from his book.
