NCBA Offers Record Breaking Trade Show at Cattle Industry Convention
2015 Cattle Industry Convention-goers will not want to miss the National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) Trade Show in San Antonio, Texas, Feb. 4-7. With 337 companies in attendance, this is the largest, most advanced trade show for the cattle industry. Every year groundbreaking technologies and ideas are introduced at the event, in addition to expert demonstrations on topics that will benefit cattlemen and women from across the nation.

"This is going to be our largest NCBA Trade Show to date, with nearly 6 acres of exhibit space, and something for everyone in the cattle industry," said NCBA President and Victoria, Texas cattleman Bob McCan. "Now more than ever, it's critical for cattlemen and women to stay apprised of current industry technology and innovative concepts to help optimize their operations."

Highlights of the Trade Show include:

Demonstration Area -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 on horseback. Much of the emphasis is placed on ways to increase cattle performance by reducing handling stress. Interactive discussions will show how cattlemen can actually shape consumers' perception of beef. Cattle handling experts Curt Pate and Ron Gill will teach each of these informative sessions.

Efficient, Low Stress Cattle Handling with Stock Dogs on Wednesday, February 4th only. Don't miss this entertaining and educational session presented by the National Cattle Dog Association.
