The 2018 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show was held January 31- February 3, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona. More than 7,500 cattlemen and women blazed their trails to the largest cattle industry event in the country.

The NCBA Trade Show held in conjunction with the convention had 357 exhibitors with eight acres of indoor and outdoor displays. The event provided attendees with education, information, fellowship and decision-making opportunities for the industry’s leading members.

“The NCBA is one of the most educational opportunities that any cattleman can participate in his lifetime to keep up to date on the most recent trends and gain new insight to help him in his success of his future business.” - 2018 Convention Attendee

“NCBA is a wonderful organization and I look forward to the annual convention every year. Convention is always a great experience, due to the coordination and expertise of the entire NCBA team. It is an excellent opportunity to network with cattle producers across the entire country and have a chance to thank cattle producers for all that they do as stewards of the land! I am already looking forward to next year’s Convention and Trade Show.”
