Celebrating Legendary Progress with Passion, Innovation and Achievement
The Angus family heads to Fort Worth, Texas, Nov. 6-8 for the 2021 Angus Convention.
Passion, innovation and achievement represent the Angus breed. Angus breeders, beef cattle enthusiasts and feeders of the world are all passionate about the work they do day in and day out. In celebration of the past and to continue legendary progress, the American Angus Association invites Angus members, commercial producers and beef industry professionals to the 2021 Angus Convention and Trade Show hosted in Fort Worth, Texas, Nov. 6-8.
The 2021 Angus Convention will be three days of making connections, finding solutions and being inspired to foster operational growth and personal leadership. Being innovative is second nature to cattlemen as the industry strives to raise the highest quality product in the most efficient and effective manner. When passion and innovation are coupled, achievement is bound to take place.
After a year of virtual events, the power of in-person events will be a highlight of this year’s Angus Convention. Cattleman can network with old and new friends throughout the trade show, educational sessions and the convention tours. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with others during several of the receptions featuring Certified Angus Beef® (CAB®) brand meals.
When attendees aren’t participating in hallway conversations, there will be several educational sessions taking place throughout the three-day event. From cattle handling to the latest in genomics, no topic is left uncovered. Take advantage of learning from industry professionals during Angus University-sponsored breakout sessions and watch hands-on education by attending a session in the cattle demonstration area. Providing tangible information is a goal for the Association; however, listening to keynote sessions will inspire passion in cattlemen to achieve more and innovate their business.
“Regardless of whether you are a member or a not, there is value for everyone,” says Mark McCully, American Angus Association CEO. “I invite you to enjoy the company of great friends while listening and learning from the most respected industry professionals.”
The Association also invites commercial producers to attend Angus Convention. Participants will gain perspective from commercial industry leaders on the future of the feeder cattle marketplace by attending the Capturing Value session. The first-of-its-kind panel will provide insight from video auction representatives, feedyard operators, seedstock producers and industry professionals alike.
“The AngusLink team was excited to offer this opportunity to commercial producers for the first time ever,” says Troy Marshall, director of commercial industry relations for the Association. “We invite producers to attend all educational sessions, but we created the Capturing Value panel to help directly benefit those in the feeder calf business.”
The 138th Annual Convention of Delegates for the American Angus Association will also convene this year, where representatives from each state will elect new members and officers to the Board of Directors and look to the future for the Angus breed.
