Recently ABS Global hosted the 13th Beef Week and Rep Roundtable Celebration. The annual event honors the top Beef Representatives across the United States. New this year in attendance were additional Beef Representatives from various regions in North America selected based off their current level of sales and business plans for future growth.
Participants benefited from presentations and speakers connecting key industry topics and discussions to benefit their business and service to customers. Highlights from this year’s Rep Roundtable included opening speaker, Don Schiefelbein, Schieflebein Farms; a presentation on the “Feedlot Perspective” by Tom Brink, President, J&F Holdings, Inc.; and Cliff Lamb, Ph.D, discussing key points on synchronization.
One of the most celebrated events during beef week is the bull tour. This is a great opportunity for individuals to see leading bulls in the ABS lineup.
Rep Roundtable celebrations closed out with the awards banquet honoring the top Representatives and District Business Manager for the year.
