Registration is now open for the 2022 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show, which will be “Gone to Texas” in Houston, February 1-3. The annual event draws thousands of cattlemen and -women from across the country for education, entertainment and engagement.

“Everything is bigger in Texas,” and that holds true for the 2022 Convention. For the first time, there will be five general sessions packed with timely industry updates, inspirational speakers and important information that every producer can use. And the NCBA Trade Show will be the largest ever encompassing 9.7 acres of exhibitors, displays and educational opportunities all under one roof.

Convention attendees will gain insights on current market trends during the CattleFax Outlook Seminar, hear a State of the Industry update from NCBA leadership, and recognize Regional Environmental Stewardship Award Program recipients and Beef Quality Assurance Award winners. Participants will also enjoy networking opportunities and entertainment throughout the event, including a special Wednesday evening social and Cowboy Comedy Club on Thursday.

The convention will be preceded by the 29th annual Cattlemen’s College, which is famous for stimulating and thought-provoking sessions. This event will begin Monday, January 31, with afternoon sessions and live animal demonstrations, followed by an evening reception. It will continue on Tuesday with 15 educational sessions offered in the morning and conclude with a keynote presentation and lunch.

In addition to experiencing a wide variety of education and entertainment opportunities, producers will be hard at work guiding both Beef Checkoff and NCBA policy programs. Annual meetings of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), the Cattlemen’s Beef Board, American National CattleWomen, CattleFax and National Cattlemen’s Foundation will also take place.

“This is the first time that the convention will be held in Houston, and I’m looking forward to experiencing all the city has to offer,” said NCBA President Jerry Bohn of Kansas. “I encourage producers to join me in Texas for the biggest convention yet.”

A variety of registration options are available including the popular family pack, which offers a $100 discount on the purchase of two full registrations combined with two student registrations. For more information and to register and reserve housing, visit
