New Orleans, LA

At the 2019 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show in New Orleans, Louisiana, you can expect to network with fellow cattlemen, create policy for the industry and to have some serious fun! For an overview of the Convention, check out the abbreviated schedule, then peek through the 2018 Post Show report to find statistics, demographics, videos, and a photo album of last year’s show in Phoenix, Arizona.  This will give you a great idea for what to expect at the 2019 show!

The Get Involved page on the website will provide insight into the fun opportunities we have in place prior to and at the event. This includes contests and opportunities such as the Marketing Ambassador Program (Applications open in June), the Cowboy Poetry Contest (opens in August), National Anthem Contest (opens in September), and scholarship opportunities (applications open in August), for farm operators/ranchers such as yourself! + So much more!

You may also find it beneficial to attend Cattlemen’s College. This is a two-day event hosted in conjunction with the Convention from Tuesday, January 29 – Wednesday, January 30, 2019. Cattlemen’s College features class room and demonstration arena settings – famous for stimulating and thought-provoking sessions that can help generate high returns for your operation.

The NCBA Trade Show is the largest trade show in the industry and will feature over 300 exhibitors! Attendees can partake in multiple receptions, meet with cutting-edge companies, and learn about cattle care and handling techniques from stockmanship experts right on the Trade Show floor.

The Cattle Industry Convention provides attendees with education, information, fellowship and decision-making opportunities for the industry’s leading members. You can continue to check back on the website and the NCBA Facebook page as we roll out announcements on entertainment, speakers, and business meetings. I’ll be sure you are on our email list so that you don’t miss out on information we release regarding the event.
