Chartered in 1954, the Mid-Coast Santa Gertrudis affiliate is one of the most active organizations within Santa Gertrudis Breeders International (SGBI) with nearly 100 active members.  Since the inception, members have dedicated themselves to enhancing and promoting the Santa Gertrudis breed of cattle, as well as this great organization. 

The major emphasis of the Mid-Coast affiliate is to promote improved breeding, production, and the sale of Santa Gertrudis cattle.  In addition to sponsoring two annual sales – the International Super Sale held during the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo in the spring and the Cattleman’s Opportunity Sale held in late summer, Mid-Coast annually hosts The Aisle Party prior to the International Super Sale. To enhance communication and education among the members, a quarterly newsletter, The Cattle Rattle, is published along with hosting an annual membership meeting and seasonal field days.

Mid-Coasts’ junior program is a top priority.  With the assistance of a youth advisor, the Mid-Coast Board sponsors a Jr. Heifer Show in the spring as a warm-up for the annual National Junior Santa Gertrudis Heifer Show, as well as providing buckles and premium money during the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Jr. Santa Gertrudis Show.  The affiliate’s junior membership annually elects junior officers, a queen and a princess at the spring event, who publishes a quarterly junior newsletter and organize fundraisers for member-based activities.   In addition, educational scholarships are provided annually to deserving junior members.
