2017 Angus University Draws Expert Speakers to Share Industry Secrets with Convention Attendees

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 14:40:39 CDT

2017 Angus University Draws Expert Speakers to Share Industry Secrets with Convention Attendees The 2017 Angus Convention offers a tremendous lineup of speakers and workshops for the fourth annual Angus University on Sunday, Nov. 5, sponsored by Merck Animal Health.


“Every year, we’re excited to bring in a diverse set of beef industry experts to share valuable information with attendees at Angus University,” says Clint Mefford, Director of Communications at the American Angus Association. “2017 promises to be the best yet, focusing on topics that are important to cattlemen and their operations.”


The Angus University general session features two outstanding keynote speakers: Ed Hendee, owner of the famous Taste of Texas restaurant, and Randy Blach, CattleFax CEO.


Hendee and his wife, Nina, own and operate the renowned Taste of Texas restaurant in Houston, which launched in 1977. The restaurant has gained local and national acclaim for setting the standard of steakhouse excellence and its consummate Texas hospitality. In 1984, Hendee embraced Certified Angus Beef® and doubled the restaurant’s sales in three years, ensuring its survival. In 1991, the Hendees constructed their own building, leading to a 300-seat hotspot and growing fame as today’s top volume, independent restaurant in the world for Certified Angus Beef®. The restaurant is truly a family business. The Hendees’ daughter, Lisa, is the chef, while their daughter, Kristin, and her husband, Corbin, help manage the business.


Blach was raised on his family’s ranch in Yuma, Colo., and graduated from Colorado State University (CSU) with an animal science degree. He received the CSU College of Agricultural Sciences Honor Alumni Award in 2004 and the 2011 Livestock Leader Award. Last year, Blach was inducted into the Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame. He joined CattleFax in 1981 and served as director of market analysis for 15 years, accepting his current role as CEO in 2001. Blach and his family remain actively involved in cattle ranching by managing cow/calf, stocker and finished cattle.


The afternoon breakout sessions will discuss key beef industry topics, including bull and heifer selection; managing consumer demands and environmental regulations; EPDs; current consumer beef trends; parasite management; low stress cattle handling; and more.


Registration is now open for the 2017 Angus Convention, which takes place Nov. 4-6 in Fort Worth, Texas. Visit the convention website to register and make hotel reservations for the three-day event, access a convention schedule, trade show map and more.
