The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) on Friday announced details of their annual Cattle Raisers Convention and Expo to be held March 29-31, 2019, at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

The 2019 Cattle Raisers Convention and Expo is the largest ranching event of the year in the southwestern United States. It will feature programs and activities of interest to cattle raisers, landowners and the general public, with opportunities for everyone to participate.

“If you own land or livestock in Texas or the Southwest, the Cattle Raisers Convention is an excellent investment of your time,” said TSCRA President Robert McKnight Jr. “I am confident you will find opportunities to further your education, gain industry information, make useful business connections and have some fun.”

Ranchers are invited to attend professional development classes offering practical education at the beginner and advanced levels. This year’s School for Successful Ranching will offer learning sessions and live demonstrations on topics including cattle health, legal issues, range and pasture management and marketing. 

Two evening classes are being offered in 2019. On Thursday, March 28, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., the Ranch to Retail Workshop will showcase how beef carcasses are transformed into the retail cuts valued by consumers. The second workshop will be Friday, March 29, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and offers in-depth livestock handling instruction from stockmanship and stewardship expert Curt Pate. 

This year will feature the largest Expo in the history of the Cattle Raisers Convention with more than 250 booths offering a vast array of ranching supplies, services, jewelry, clothing, local food and more. 

Industry experts will also be on hand for a variety of information sessions on issues that have a direct impact on cattle raisers, landowners and consumers. Included in these sessions will be updates on federal and state legislation, international trade, an explanation of how Alexa, Siri and now “Chuck” are changing the way consumers find health and nutrition information, and efforts to reform Texas’ eminent domain laws.

Much more is on the agenda, and registration is now open. Visit www.CattleRaisersConvention.com for more information and to register to attend and reserve hotel rooms at the headquarters hotels.
