Register online before 5 p.m. (CDT), Friday, July 8, and your registration could be on us! Participants who register by the deadline will be entered in a drawing to win a free registration and hotel stay. One grand prize winner will receive a full refund on Convention registration and complimentary lodging at the hotel of his or her choice.

The Angus Convention will feature industry leaders including representatives from the seedstock, commercial and feeding sectors. Convention attendees will have the opportunity to sit in on educational seminars, conduct Association business, listen to top-notch speakers and network with industry professionals.

Now in its third year, the event will feature expanded workshops that cover a variety of topics, including genomics, recordkeeping, herd management and performance tools. Industry-leading speakers, American Angus Association staff and other experts will be among the presenters. A three-day trade show featuring allied-industry partners will offer cattlemen and women a chance to browse through the latest in products and services available to the beef industry and to visit with Angus breeders and their commercial partners from throughout the country.

The 2016 Angus Foundation Supporter Recognition Event will be the evening of Nov. 4 in conjunction with the Angus Convention. When registering online for the convention, a feature will also be available to register for this invitation-only event.

Members of the Indiana Angus Association will host the National Angus Tour Friday, Nov. 4, prior to the official start of the 2015 Angus Convention. Tour stops will include Willer Timber Angus in Greencastle, Stewart Select Angus in Greensburg, Coverdale Angus in Frankton and The Hoosiers Gym, built by the Knightstown Community.

Convention highlights will include the International Genomics Symposium sponsored by Neogen’s GeneSeek Operations and cattle demonstrations sponsored by Zoetis on Saturday, Nov. 5; Angus University sponsored by Merck Animal Health on Sunday, Nov. 6; and the Annual Convention of Delegates on Monday, Nov. 7. Country music legend Sawyer Brown will entertain the crowd on Sunday evening with a concert.

“The Angus Convention is the premier cattle event for quality-minded cattlemen. $75 is a tremendous value for extensive education, a solutions-oriented trade show with over 140 exhibitors, four meals featuring Certified Angus Beef®, plus networking and social opportunities,” says Becky Weishaar, Angus Media Creative Media director and lead contact for the event.

Delegates elected to represent their state during the Association’s Annual Convention may attend the Association business meetings for free; however, participation in convention education, meals, entertainment and the trade show requires a full convention registration. If you register prior to Aug. 31, the cost is $75 per person. On Sept. 1, registration increases to $125, and after Nov. 1, registration increases to $150.
