The 3 day meetings and tours feature keynote industry speakers and tours in the area for attendees.  It’s a great event that allows breeders from all over to come together for a few days to learn, socialize and see great cattle.  Several of the tour stops featured ABS sired progeny on display.  Highlights of the calves follow.
