The 2017 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show is underway in Nashville, TN and we are set up to bring you updates on policy impacting the beef community and other hot topics cattlemen and women across the country need to know. My first conversation of the week was with the NCBA CEO, Kendall Fraizer, who shared highlights of #CattleCon17 and what we can see from NCBA in 2017.
Fraizer said his team looks forward to working with the new administration and Congress on trade, tax reform and environmental regulation relief. “This year’s going to be an interesting year for our business. We are expanding the cowherd in reaction to higher prices we had in 2013-2015 after liquidating the cowherd during the major drought. The inventory report says we have about a million more cows now so we are going to have a lot of beef to sell this year.”
Education is a key component of this event. Listen to my complete interview with Fraizer to here what the folks at home are missing out on: Interview with Kendall Fraizer, NCBA CEO
