The 2017 Angus Convention will feature an exciting general welcome session and the International Genomics Symposium, sponsored by Neogen GeneSeek Operations, to lead off this year’s event, including the unveiling of the next generation genomic profile test Angus GS®, powered by Neogen.

“This year’s International Genomics Symposium focuses on progress,” says Clint Mefford, Director of Communications at the American Angus Association. “From the future of technology impacting the Angus business and innovative genetic tools, 2017 Angus Convention attendees will get to see firsthand how our industry is moving forward.”

The general welcome session features futurist Dr. Lowell Catlett. Dr. Catlett retired in July 2015 as Regents Professor in Agricultural Economics & Agricultural Business & Extension and the Dean & Chief Administrative Officer of the College of Agricultural, Consumer & Environmental Sciences at New Mexico State University. His knowledge of technologies and their implications on the way we live and will be the theme of his upbeat presentation. Dr. Catlett’s vast knowledge astounds corporate and association audiences both national and internationally. The presentation promises to be through provoking and highly entertaining.

After Dr. Catlett’s presentation, Angus Genetics, Inc., will present an engaging panel discussion. The panel will feature Dr. Dan Moser, AGI president; Dr. Stephen Miller, AGI genetic research director; and Kelli Retallick, AGI genetic service director. The AGI team will lead a discussion on how genetic technology is progressing at an ever-increasing rate and how that will impact Angus breeders’ herds on a daily basis.

Registration is now open for the 2017 Angus Convention, which takes place Nov. 4-6 in Fort Worth, Texas. Visit the convention website, www.angusconvention.com, to register and make hotel reservations for the three-day event, access a convention schedule, trade show map and more.
