Get the Most Out Of Convention
Get the Most Out Of Beef Industry Meetings
Regional, state and national beef industry meetings normally are held during winter, spring and fall.
The 2019 meeting schedule began with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Cattle Industry Convention and Tradeshow held in New Orleans from Jan. 30 through Feb. 1. The next big meeting for Texas and Oklahoma beef cattle producers is the Cattle Raisers Convention March 29-31 in Fort Worth. Other large meetings will be conducted later in the year.
Two-day or longer meetings normally require travel, lodging, meals and meeting registration fees, which are expensive. To justify the expenses, an attendee needs to get as much benefit from the meeting as possible and this requires planning. Toward the end of last year, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association hosted a webinar during which Tim Hammerich, founder of AgGrad and host of the “Future of Agriculture” podcast, discussed how to get the most out of beef industry meetings.
