What Our Attendees Have to Say

“No other opportunity exists in the world that provides the opportunity for cattlemen/cattlewomen to develop a strong network with others that are focused on all aspects of cattle production except at the NCBA Cattle Industry Annual Convention and Trade Show.  Year after year, the leadership in this program continues to ‘hit home runs’ as programs are developed that meet the needs of all involved with the cattle industry.” 

“The NCBA Cattle Industry Convention and Trade Show is a can’t miss event for any cattleman that is serious about the industry.  The educational opportunities such as Cattlemen’s College and the general sessions, to networking with other cattlemen from across the U.S. and all the policy committee meetings that help shape our industry there is nothing else like it in our industry.”

“If you want to get caught up with all the latest news, products, & industry updates in the cattle industry, the NCBA Convention is the place to be. It is a one stop shop for very valuable information to use in your ranching operation.”

“We traveled to the convention with a group of 8 students. The time spent at the convention was a great investment for our students as they think about their next chapter as well as an opportunity for all of us to connect with industry leaders and a broad spectrum of like minded folks.”

“Never quit learning the whole time you’re here.”

“Just like a big family reunion.”
