Show Floor Education
Education and entertainment come together to provide tradeshow goers with valuable opportunities to learn about cattle care and handling techniques. From Chutes and Scales to Cattle Handling Demonstrations and Learning Lounges, there's something for everyone!
This area will feature NCBA’s Beef Quality Assurance program Stockmanship & Stewardship. These sessions will teach handling methods that improve gathering, penning, chute work and hauling. Much emphasis is placed on ways to increase cattle performance by reducing handling stress. Interactive discussions show how cattlemen can actually shape consumers perception of beef. Other topics include how the principles presented have a significant economic — as well as “quality of life” — benefit when applied in a cattle enterprise.
