National Cattlemen's Convention
Its Super Bowl Sunday and I am wondering who you are cheering for? I am not much of a football fan but love watching the commercials! I wonder if there will be any beef commercials. John and I are currently sitting in the Nashville airport headed home from National Cattlemen's Conventions. We had a blast, made lots of contact, and learn about the issues facing the cattle industry today. If you aren't a member of NCBA, I suggest you join. They fight for cattlemen in Washington D.C and give us a voice to fight HSUS and PETA. Here is a link to join if you are interested!
While we were in Nashville, we got to enjoy a night at the Grand Ole Opry! It was a private party for the Cattlemen and featured Charlie Pride, Josh Turner, and Eden's Edge. Also while we were there we heard from a Navy SEAL about his time in Iraq and Afghanistan. What an amazing young man, he spoke about living life to the fullest and always doing your very best. He has a book for sale, " Lone Survivor" Here is the website to order the book!
There were many meeting about the resolutions that NCBA supports. Here is a link to the major issues the NCBA will fight for in 2012! http://www.beefusa.org/2012ncbapolicypriorities.aspx
I urge you to check out the website and their facebook page. The Convention was both fun and educational and I hope to see you there next year!
Have a great Sunday!
