NCBA Trade Show Agenda

Just received the agenda for the trade show demos we do for the NCBA.  Todd MacCartney (Bubba) and Dean Fish (Coy- Remember Shriners convention song) are the front side of the team and get everything set just the way we need it to make it a very popular part of the NCBA convention.  They are very passionate about being passionate about what they are passionate about.

If your in the area, or can get a cheap Allegiant flight it would be a good way to learn and enjoy many things BEEF.  I believe you can get a trade show pass or get in all the convention activities.  We never get to much of the other stuff as we are working, but I walk around the trade show and it is amazing what is available to see.  Google Ncba’s beef industry convention or check at “beef.org” and I think you can get info.
