Blaze a Trail is the theme for the 2018 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show January 31 – February 2 in Phoenix, AZ.
Prior to the actual kickoff of the event will be the 25th Anniversary of Cattlemen’s College, the opening general session speaker will be Ree Drummond the Pioneer Woman, and attendees will also hear from former MLB Pitcher, Jim Abbott, who will share his motivating story of success, despite having been born without a right hand. A Cowboy Poet Contest ties into the Comedy Club taking place Friday night. On the business side, committees will meet on all topics including environmental issues, taxes, and the international market, and of course, there’s the big industry trade show.
