NETBIO CEO Dwight Bell and Dr. Mario Villarino, Secretary/Treasurer, discuss the October 16/17 Beef event in Sulphur Springs. In addition to education seminars at the Civic Center on Friday October 16, the committee has planned a steak cook-off and dinner with concert that evening on Celebration Plaza. Entertainment will be Hopkins County’s own Johnny Lee and the Urban Cowboy Band. An added feature will be a 5K “Run for the Beef” on Saturday morning from Celebration Plaza which will conclude the Cattleman’s Classic event.
The NETBIO organization needs steak cooking teams to compete for cash prizes. They also need ticketholders to enjoy the ribeye meal. Tickets for the meal are $25, available at the Hopkins County Agrilife Extension Office, at Texas Heritage National Bank locations or online at texashnb.com.

The Northeast Texas Beef Improvement Organization (NETBIO) was founded in 1998. The non-profit’s semi-annual pre-conditioned calf sales in Sulphur Springs make a dynamic impact on the local economy.
