Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association 2013 Annual Convention and Trade Show
Cowboy Poet and Humorist Baxter Black will be the featured speaker at the Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association 2013 Annual Convention and Trade Show being held January 17-19th at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Murfreesboro. Best known for his appearances on RFD TV and Hee Haw before that, Baxter will bring his unique brand of cowboy humor to Tennessee. “We are exited to have Baxter attend our convention this year” said Charles Hord, TCA Executive Vice President. “Everyone is invited to come hear Baxter and participate in all the events at our annual convention and trade show.”
The TCA convention is one of the largest cattle specific conferences and trade shows in the Southeast and features speakers from across the country. There will be sessions discussing cattle marketing, health and nutrition as well as a panel discussion on retail trends in the cattle industry.
“We will have over 60 vendors in the trade show and it is a great chance for producers to come and learn new information from industry professionals” shared Larry McCoy, a beef producer from Ripley and current President of the Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association. “I always come and learn something I can take back to my operation and benefit from.”
Everyone is invited to come to convention for only $10 a day or $15 for both days with pre-registration. This includes the trade show, educational sessions and Baxter Black program. Meals are extra.
