Music City Welcomes… BEEF!

It’s the first week of February; calves are being born and the forces of winter are in full blast. However, many cattlemen and cattlewomen from all over the nation are making their way to Nashville, Tennessee. Why you may ask? For the annual Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Tradeshow!

Attendee's will hear from several keynote speakers while at convention this year.

The Cattle Industry Convention is more than just an event; it is an investment to cattle operations everywhere. This convention features over 16 different educational sessions, panel and discussion meetings, and a tradeshow where farmers and ranchers can try out new and up coming products. These feature events are extremely valuable to cattle producers, providing opportunities to learn, share ideas with other cattlemen and women, and join together as a cattle community.  There are opportunities for attendees to form new business relationships, assist in the development of new policies impacting the cattle community and take stake in the future of the beef industry.

The NCBA Tradeshow features hundreds of vendors and dozens of new products.

Our National Beef Ambassador team is really excited to spend a week in Nashville, networking with our fellow cattle producers and gaining valuable industry knowledge. While at the convention, I am most looking forward to the collegiate career fair. It is a very rare and unique opportunity to be in a room with employers who are all just as energized and excited for the future of the beef industry as I am! As we kick off the 116th annual convention, it’s time to come together as a beef community to learn, explore and celebrate beef.

Full coverage of the event will be offered through televised segments, blog posts, and radio interviews all posted to http://www.cattlementocattlemen.org/ or broadcasted on RFD TV.

Hope to see you in Nashville!

All for the love of beef,
