Cattle Industry Convention

Cattlemen and women from across the country will be in Nashville next month for the 2021 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show. The event, normally held in February each year, was pushed back six months due to Covid-19. The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association notes the importance of gathering in person at this event is even more evident after the uncertainties in 2020.

It will all take place Aug. 9-12 at the Gaylord Opryland. Convention participants will gain insights on market trends during the CattleFax Outlook Seminar, hear a “State of the Industry” update from NCBA leadership, learn about the cattle industry’s role in sustainability, and wander through the NCBA Trade Show, the industry’s largest, with more than 350 exhibitors on more than seven acres. Attendees will also enjoy entertainment throughout the event.

The 28th annual Cattlemen’s College will begin Monday, Aug. 9, with afternoon sessions and then continue the next day with a morning full of educational sessions.


While the 2021 Cattle Industry Convention is being held in person, a virtual option is available for those who can’t attend. The CattleCon Remix ticket provides live streaming of all general sessions as well as on-demand options for other educational events.
