ABS Global hosted its annual Beef Week celebration the last week of July. This year marks the eleventh anniversary of this event which honors the top Beef Representatives across the United States and invites them to visit the ABS headquarters and participate in roundtable discussions.
Beef Week participants present key factors of their AI business and share success stories with the opportunity to learn and build their respective business with insights from associates. Invitees also enjoy a tour of the ABS facilities in De Forest and Dekorra, in addition to the sights and scenes of the Madison area.
Pictures and highlights from this year’s Beef Week are below.
The week started off with a Dinner cruise on Madison’s Lake Mendota.
Even the youngest of attendees got a chance to drive the boat.
Tuesday morning started with the Beef Product Management review, a Presentation from Dr. Cliff Lamb, and Jared Murnin presented an overview for ORIgen. Representatives also began delivering their business presentations.
The Awards Banquet on Tuesday night was held at Prime Quarter.
Day 2 began with the ABS facility and bull tour – the highlight for many Representatives and attendees.
Special thank you to the ABS Barn staff for their extra efforts to have the bulls ready!
More Presentations followed with an evening of relaxing at the ABS Dekorra facilities.
