Ranchers looking to secure better genetic outcomes should register this month
“Focus on you. Focus on success. Focus on profit.” That’s what cattlemen attending the American Simmental Association’s upcoming Fall Focus event can expect. The 2019 annual gathering takes place August 23-27 in Manhattan, KS.
Fall Focus is a must-see, with ranch tours, an interactive symposium featuring expert speakers, and leading influencers discussing genetic selection, marketability and future sustainability.
“It’s a great event for commercial cattlemen and cattlewomen in Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, or surrounding areas who are interested in seeing a microcosm of the beef business in one place, on one day, and engaging with not only serious, savvy seedstock producers, but aggressive, profit-focused commercial people at the same time,” says Chip Kemp, American Simmental Association Director of Commercial and Industry Operations.
Designed to drive dialogue, the conference will feature the sharing of ideas and success stories.
“We’ll have some marketing conversations there, relative to how we make a valuable feeder calf and how we market that calf to capture value going forward,” Kemp says.
Most importantly, Kemp adds, “There will be takeaways for everyone – no matter where one fits in the industry.”
At the end of the day, it’s about adding to the commercial and seedstock producer’s bottom line. If that interests you, ASA wants you at the Fall Focus meeting.
