Quality-focused Cattle Producers Gather near Kansas City

An estimated 2,000 cattlemen will attend the Angus Convention & Trade Show Nov. 3-5.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (Nov. 2, 2015) — As the hometown Kansas City Royals celebrate a World Series championship, cattlemen and women from across the country will congregate in Overland Park, Kan., for the American Angus Association’s premier event of the year.
The Angus Means Business National Convention & Trade Show takes place Tuesday-Thursday, Nov. 3-5, at the Overland Park Convention Center, just minutes from downtown Kansas City.

“It’s an incredible time to be in Kansas City, and we look forward to hosting 2,000 cattle producers during the Angus Convention,” says Becky Weishaar, Creative Media director for Angus Media and lead contact for the event. “We have a packed schedule filled with outstanding educational opportunities, inspiring keynote speakers and plenty of fun for anyone involved in the beef business.”

Monday morning, Nov. 2, five buses departed the Overland Park Convention Center for the Kansas Angus Tour, hosted by the Kansas Angus Association. Nearly 200 cattle producers will spend the day touring area farms and ranches, as a special extension of Angus events in Kansas.

The Angus Convention officially begins with the International Genomics Symposium at 9 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 3. The industry’s leading thought leaders in DNA technology will share insight into how the science is shaping beef cattle breeding and genetics. All attendees present Nov. 3 will also be eligible to win a brand-new Cat® Skid Steer Loader, donated by Caterpillar.
