"Every year the Cattle Industry Annual Convention & NCBA Trade Show is THE go-to event in the industry. Not only in terms of the business meetings, but including the educational opportunities, the ability to see new products, hands on access for product comparisons, access to the expertise of the exhibitors & networking with cattlemen from all across the country."

"The NCBA convention is a great place to network with an array of people from not just the USA but from around the world.  Wonderful event to learn about new technology"

"Ginormous! The amount of booths and folks in the trade show is unbelievable. It’s so amazing too to speak with the different industry folks and talk to real people about implementing new technologies on the ranch; or even speaking with the land grant colleges to see what research and opportunities are out their for the youth!"
