The Cattle Raisers Convention and Expo is where the region’s best ranchers and landowners come to see what’s new. With more than 4,500 attendees, the Cattle Raisers Convention and Expo is the region’s largest ranching and cattle industry convention and expo. 

The ranchers and cattle raisers who attend the Cattle Raisers Expo identify themselves as innovators, leaders and early adopters. Collectively they own or manage 1/3 of the cattle in Texas on more than 75 million acres of range and pasture. These are the customers you want to reach. And they are all in one place at the Cattle Raisers Expo. 

The Cattle Raisers Expo is where ranchers and landowners in the southwestern U.S. meet with success. It’s also the place where agribusiness meets with successful ranchers.
