Certified Hereford Beef Served at the Chisholm Trail 150th Anniversary

Certified Hereford Beef brisket made a guest appearance at the 150th anniversary celebration of the Chisholm Trail in Wichita, Kan.

To commemorate the momentous anniversary, a herd of cattle were driven from Oklahoma to Kansas along the route of the original Chisholm Trail, complete with cattle drovers, Texas longhorns and chuck wagons. The tour stopped at a “cow camp” and the future site of the Wichita Union Stockyards in Wichita on Sept. 23. The cow camp was open to the public to learn more about the history of the Chisholm Trail, enjoy a CHB brisket dinner and listen to live music.

“I was very pleased with how everything at the event turned out,” says Rob Paxson, RayKies Catering. “The quality was second to none and the meat was very tender, juicy, flavorful and consistent. The brisket could not have been better!”

The CHB blow up steer also made an appearance at the event and the wait staff was decked out in CHB gear including hats, aprons and buttons.

“I am glad Certified Hereford Beef was served at the 150th anniversary celebration of the Chisholm Trail,” says CHB Chief Operating Officer Amari Manning. “The Chisholm Trail has a rich history, just like the Certified Hereford Beef brand, so it was very fitting to serve our product to everyone celebrating the cattle drive tradition.”
