CATTLE FEEDERS HALL OF FAME ANNOUNCES 10TH ANNUAL BANQUET
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Oct. 3, 2018) —The 10th annual Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame banquet will be held on January 29, 2019 in conjunction with the Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show in New Orleans. The event will feature the announcement of the newest inductees of the Hall of Fame.
The Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame was established in March 2009 to recognize individuals who have made extraordinary and lifelong contributions to the cattle feeding industry. Founding sponsors of the Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame include Merck Animal Health, Farm Journal Media and Osborn & Barr (O+B | P).
“Celebrating 10 years of the Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame is a tremendous milestone, and we would not be where we are today without the Hall of Fame cattle feeders who have devoted their careers to preserving our mission and improving production practices in the industry,” said Cliff Becker, Vice President of Publishing for Farm Journal Media and Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame Board Member. “Historically, the Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame banquet was held in July in Denver during the NCBA’s summer meetings, so we’re looking forward to changing up the 2019 event with a new time and location.”
The Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame inductees are selected by a nominating committee and then voted on by their peers. The two cattle feeders who will be inducted during the 2019 banquet will join a distinguished group of cattle industry leaders. You can make your vote until October 19th for the 2019 class at http://www.cattlefeeders.org/vote-hof/
