The Florida Cattlemen’s Association has welcomed cattlemen and women from across the country this week at the 2013 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show with warm sunshine and a great sense of hospitality.
Florida is celebrating 500 years of agriculture and beef production has a rich history here in the Sunshine State. The Florida Cattlemen’s Foundation has created a book called “Florida Cattle Ranching – Five Centuries of Tradition” to bring tribute to the hard working men and women of Florida’s beef industry.
The 128-page book contains the entire content of the multi-media museum exhibit in book form. It is stock full of over 200 photos sharing Florida’s cattle ranching heritage from the 16th century to the present.
I spoke with Wade Grigsby, Past President of the Florida Cattlemen’s Association, and he was excited to share his rich history in the beef industry and dedication to Florida agriculture.
