Hear it from past attendees:

"The value of the Educational sessions Animal Health, Nutritional Strategy's new Genetic Tools, go along way to offset the cost of the Conference." 

"This was my first NCBA convention and trade show, I was extremely impressed.  The trade show was as good as everyone said it would be.  The speakers at the cattlemen's college were very informative and easy to understand.  The amount of knowledge a person can take away from this 4 day event is unreal.  I made many new friends and contacts." 

"Cattlemen's college was great way to keep up on industry changes. Calf immunity class was outstanding. I'm changing my vaccination program because of new information!"
