The Florida Cattlemen’s Association’s Annual Convention is a can’t-miss event if you’re in the Florida cattle industry.

If you’re in the Florida cattle industry, you’re likely headed to the Annual Convention of the Florida Cattlemen’s Association, scheduled for Tuesday, June 20th through Thursday, June 22nd at the Hilton Buena Vista Palace in Orlando, Florida. It’s a can’t-miss event for those in Florida’s cattle industry; explore a sampling of the benefits below for those in Florida cattle production.

Benefits to the Florida Cattle Industry

Annual conventions like the Florida Cattlemen’s Association’s Annual Convention present many opportunities for producers in Florida’s cattle industry. A main benefit of such conventions is the opportunity for those with cattle farms to get the most up-to-date information concerning their industry. This year’s FCA Convention includes the business meetings of many in Florida’s cattle industry, including the Florida Cattlemen’s Association, Florida CattleWomen Inc., the Florida Grazing Lands Coalition, the Seedstock Committee, and many more. These meetings allow everyone to come together, discuss the issues of the day, and decide the course the group will take in the near future.

The FCA’s Annual Convention also offers the chance to see the latest innovations in products and services offered by suppliers and dealers in the industry. The Allied Trade Show runs concurrent with the Convention, allowing the men and women in the cattle industry to explore what’s new in the technology, products, and services they use—or could use—on their cattle farms.

Lastly, the Convention offers many opportunities for Florida cattle industry operators to network and form the business connections that are important in any industry. This year’s FCA Annual Convention features receptions, a Silent Auction fundraiser, breakfasts, luncheons, suppers, a golf tournament, volleyball, and a black-tie banquet, just to name a few. While guest speakers are presenting and the main course is being enjoyed, business relationships are forming that will benefit all parties for years to come.

Online registration is closed, but cattle operators can still register on-site.
