  • 10 Tips for Leveraging Social Media Surrounding a Big Event

    by Jessica Weber | Sep 26, 2017
    When big news hits your Industry or breed, are you prepared to leverage it? Last weekend at the historic Fort Worth Stockyards a Texas Longhorn bull, Cowboy Tuff Chex, sold for $165,000.

ABC News awarded the event national coverage and dozens of other local news sources also put out stories. But how do you, the general Longhorn (or any) breeder, who may not have a $165,000 bull or an $80,000 cow, leverage the national buzz and increase awareness of your breeding program?
