Wyo Cattle Industry Convention and Trade Show focuses on ‘Nuts and Bolts’

Written by Natasha Wheeler

Sheridan – Who is behind much of the work in Wyoming’s agricultural industry? 

“Join us for the 2015 Wyoming Cattle Industry Convention and Trade Show to find out and learn about the ‘Nuts and Bolts of Your Industry,’” says the Wyoming Stock Growers Association (WSGA).

The convention will be held June 3-6 at the Holiday Inn in Sheridan, and a full schedule promises education opportunities for everyone.

With the theme “Nuts and Bolts of Your Industry,” the event will be filled with panel discussions and speakers focusing on helping producers to understand what state agencies, ag organizations and other groups do every day. 

As particular highlights of the convention, WSGA notes that June 3 will kick off with a welcome reception at the Sheridan Holiday Inn. 

June 4 will feature Miss Wyoming 2014 Jessie Allen and Wyoming State Senator Dave Kinskey speaking about leading for Wyoming agriculture. The day will also host WSGA committee meetings and a reception, raffle and auction at the Sheridan Inn. 

National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Philip Ellis will present a national perspective on June 5, and King Ranch, the winner of the 2015 Environment Stewardship Award and Leopold Conservation Award, will also be recognized. Governor Matt Mead will present the Clifford P. Hansen Memorial Scholarship and new WSGA officers will be installed that evening, with dinner entertainment provided by Dave Munsick and the Little Big Band.

Finally, the event will round out on June 6 with the Roundup Breakfast, featuring the Wyoming Congressional Delegation and a look at education and state organizations.
