It’s time to “Get Jazzed” in New Orleans for the 2023 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show. Registration and housing are now open for the annual event, which takes place Feb. 1-3, 2023. Every year, CattleCon draws thousands of cattlemen and women from across the country for education, entertainment and engagement.
Convention attendees will gain insights on current market trends during the CattleFax Outlook Seminar, hear a “State of the Industry” update from NCBA leadership, and recognize Regional Environmental Stewardship Award Program recipients and Beef Quality Assurance Award winners. Participants will also enjoy networking opportunities and entertainment, including a special Thursday evening event and a Cowboy Concert on Friday night featuring Neal McCoy and the country music group Midland.
The convention is preceded by the 30th annual Cattlemen’s College, which is famous for highlighting cutting-edge topics from industry leaders. This event begins Tuesday, Jan. 31, with afternoon sessions and live animal demonstrations, followed by an evening reception. It continues Wednesday with 18 educational session options and a keynote presentation and lunch.
In addition to experiencing a wide variety of education and entertainment opportunities, producers will be hard at work guiding both Beef Checkoff and NCBA policy programs. Annual meetings of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, the Cattlemen’s Beef Board, American National CattleWomen, CattleFax and National Cattlemen’s Foundation will also take place.
A variety of registration options are available including the popular Education Package, which includes full convention registration and admission to Cattlemen’s College. For more information and to register and reserve housing, visit https://convention.ncba.org/.
