Cattle Industry Convention Features High-Profile Speakers

The 2022 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show is this week in Houston. The speaker lineup includes people ranging from sports heroes to global leaders. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack will appear virtually. Robert Bonnie, the Undersecretary for Farm Production and Conservation, will appear live, and so will Dame Karen Pierce, the British Ambassador to the United States. This high-profile session takes place on Thursday and will provide updates on the business climate of the cattle and beef industry, conservation, and trade. “We’re thrilled to have Secretary Vilsack and Undersecretary Bonnie joining us at the convention,” says NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Ethan Lane. “We take pride in our working relationship with the USDA.” Lane says they’re also pleased that Pierce will be joining the group  because increased access to global markets is a key tool for increasing profitability and opportunity for cattle producers across the country.”

Farm and Ranch Director Jesse Allen will be reporting live this week from the 2022 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show in Houston.
