With the theme of “Experience Angus Convention,” this year’s convention promises unparalleled educational opportunities, industry insight and a solutions-based trade show. Registration is now open for the highly anticipated 2023 Angus Convention, the premier event for cattle producers and industry professionals.
“While the average consumer may think of beaches and amusement parks when they think of Florida, we know the state is rich cow country,” said Mark McCully, chief executive officer of the American Angus Association®.
Attendees can look forward to a lineup of engaging sessions, renowned speakers and interactive workshops. Not to mention the large variety of tours this year makes it a family-focused event.
Sign up for the National Angus Tour to learn more about Florida’s cattle industry or attend Beef Blitz to get a closer look at how beef makes its way to consumers. Other tours being offered include Gatorland, Kennedy Space Center, Wild Florida and more.
“Being in Florida, we knew that members might want to bring their families for a few days to experience the sights,” said Caitlyn Brandt, director of events and junior activities.
The first gathering of all attendees will be at the Grand Opening of the trade show on Friday evening. One of the highlights of the general sessions will be a session focused on genomics. “Genomics has transformed how we think about breeding cattle today. But it’s not just the Angus world that has seen change,” McCully said.
Throughout this year’s Angus Convention, educational sessions will introduce topics for attendees to learn more about production practices, new technologies and marketing. Angus University sessions on Sunday morning are designed to pique the interest of any size cattlemen from across the country.
With production topics like Artificial Insemination (AI) best practices, fly control and parasite resistance, Association members are encouraged to invite their commercial cattleman customers. “The convention isn’t just for Angus breeders,” Brandt said. “All users of Angus genetics will find something of interest.”
