Closing General Session - A BQA Celebration

'If I Can'

Sponsored by Beef Quality Assurance
In Partnership with the Beef Checkoff and Cargill



Chris Koch doesn’t let limitations or obstacles stand in his way. Despite being born without arms and legs, Koch grew up like any other small-town kid — playing road hockey, causing mischief at school, and helping out on his family farm. Neither he or his family treated his disability like a tragedy, and instead used it to fuel his dreams. Today, Koch is a motivational speaker who inspires his audiences to continually challenge themselves and build the life they dream of. 

Plan to attend this inspiring closing session and help us wrap up the 2023 Cattle Industry Convention with the BQA Celebration of Excellence. The BQA Awards recognize the best of the beef industry with the winners will leaving you inspired, motivated and proud to be a part of our great industry.
