The Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association will hold its 2nd annual summer conference and trade show, “Tennessee Valley Livestock Conference,” at the Walters State Expo Center in White Pine, Tenn. This one-day event will be on Saturday, June 30, 2018.
The event, sponsored by Tennessee Farmers Cooperative, will include the North Carolina State “Amazing Grazing” Coordinator, Johnny Rogers, a live cattle grading demonstration by USDA Grading Specialists, and live demonstrations on animal health and low-stress cattle handling from UT Extension Specialists, Dr. Justin Rhinehart and Dr. Lew Strickland. The event will also host a large, multi-vendor trade show.
“We are very excited about our 2nd Annual Summer Conference in White Pine,” said Charles Hord, TCA Executive Vice-President. “The benefit of the Walters State Arena is our ability to bring in cattle and have events like a grading demonstration and low-stress cattle handling. We are excited to visit East Tennessee and be more accessible to our members in that region of the state.”
Pre-registration is $20 per person and includes lunch served in the arena and a biscuit breakfast sponsored by the Tennessee Farmers Coop. Pre-registration ends June 20th. Late registration and registration at the door will be an additional $10 per person over the pre-registration fee.
The registration form is available in the Tennessee Cattle Business magazine and on TCA’s website. Registration can also be completed by calling the office: 615-896-2333.
