#CattleCon19 is ready to Laissez Le Bons Temps Roulez (Let the Good Times Roll) in New Orleans this week at the 2019 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show!

The 2019 event will be one of the largest on record with over 9,000 cattlemen and women expected in the Crescent City for 3.5 days of education, fellowship, networking, business and plenty of fun. The convention is the largest gathering of cattle industry professionals in the country, and the NCBA Trade Show will feature more than 350 exhibitors on 7+ acres. The annual meetings of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, the Cattlemen’s Beef Board, American National CattleWomen, CattleFax and National Cattlemen’s Foundation will also be held at this event.

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue will speak at the Closing General Session on Friday at the New Orleans Convention Center. He will address the farm bill, trade and other issues affecting the state of American agriculture.

NCBA President and California cattleman Kevin Kester says the industry is honored to host Secretary Perdue at the Convention. “There are many issues facing those who make their livings in the cattle industry, so It’s great that Secretary Perdue will share his thoughts and his agency’s plans with us at the Convention,” Kester said. “We have more than 7,000 people already pre-registered for the event, and we should have a record turnout. Those in attendance at the Closing Session will benefit from hearing what we an industry can expect from government in the coming months and years.”
