50th annual Missouri Cattle Convention nears – High Plains Journal

Hundreds of Missouri cattle producers are expected to convene in Columbia, Missouri, Jan. 5 to 7, 2018, for the 50th annual Cattle Industry Convention and Missouri Cattlemen’s Association Trade Show. MCA Vice President and Convention Committee Chair Bobby Simpson, a cattle producer from Salem, Missouri, said the convention is the largest event of its kind in the state solely focused on the state’s vibrant cattle industry.

“The convention is where we as an association gather to chart the course for the coming year. Members set our policy priorities and oversee the direction of this association. It’s more than just business though. We honor outstanding county affiliates, recognize individual contributions and dedicate an entire evening to the next generation of farmers and ranchers,” said Simpson. “This is also a tremendous time to network with agribusinesses and producers from across the state.”

Simpson said the change in venue from the Lake of the Ozarks to Columbia, Missouri, leads him to believe the MCA trade show will attract more vendors.

“The convention center is large enough to allow vendors to bring in large equipment and machinery for display. We fully expect to have more vendors and more things for producers to see,” said Simpson. “The trade show is the perfect place for cattle producers to catch up on the latest technology and products to help us improve our respective cattle operations.”

Registration for the event is now open by visiting https://www.mocattle.org/missouricattleindustryconventionandtradeshow.aspx. Attendees must register by Dec. 11 to receive the discounted rate. Vendors interested in exhibiting at the convention should contact the MCA office or visit the MCA website.
