Sandhills Cattle Assn. plans convention May 27
BROKEN BOW, Neb. – The Sandhills Cattle Association will hold its 71st Annual Convention on Thursday, May 27, 2010, at the Custer County Fairgrounds in Broken Bow, Neb.
Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. The convention program will provide a day full of engaging speakers discussing timely topics along with an industry trade show and annual benefit auction.
Patrick J. Michaels will be the first speaker at 10:00 a.m. with “Climate Change, Cattle, and Cap-and-Trade.” Michaels presentation will explore the lack of science and logic behind futile legislative efforts that can only cause great harm to those who feed the nation, and therefore everyone else.
B. Lynn Gordon will share information about the recent increase in quotas for hormone-free, high quality beef to be exported to the European Union and the marketing opportunity it presents for cow-calf producers in Nebraska.
Spreading the message of agriculture and the public perception of beef producers will be discussed by Ann Marie Bosshamer, Executive Director of the Nebraska Beef Council in her presentation, “Taking Back Agriculture.”
Craig Buescher will wrap up the speaker presentations with “Tough Times Never Last … Tough People Do.” Craig is currently president of the Nebraska Ag Relations Council and does a weekly ag trivia program on the Rural Radio Network.
The day before the convention the 2010 Shoot & Swing Tournament, a combined shooting and golf outing, will be held. This is a fun tournament for 4-person teams who will shoot a round of skeet and a round of trap in the morning at the One Box Gun Club.
Then the teams move to the Broken Bow Country Club for nine holes of golf in the afternoon. Prizes will be awarded to the top teams in shooting and in golf as well as the overall champion. Call the Sandhills Cattle Association office to enter.
The convention is open to all interested cattle producers. Pre-registration is appreciated, but tickets will be available at the door. A complete schedule of events and registration form are available at http://www.sandhillscattle.com.
