Nashville Stars Set to Entertain Cattlemen

The 2012 Cattle Industry Convention and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Trade Show Feb. 1-4, 2012, in Nashville, Tenn., has more in store for participants than one may expect. In addition to unparalleled educational opportunities, convention goers will be entertained by country music legends and some of Nashville’s most recognized talent. NCBA President Bill Donald said establishing NCBA policy positions and providing tools and information to help cattle producers become more profitable are NCBA’s top priorities at convention but emphasized the importance of having a good time.

“We work long and hard at convention but we never fail to have a good time. Nashville is home to some of the best entertainment in the country and convention participants will have several opportunities to capitalize on all the city has to offer,” said Donald. “This is definitely a convention where the entire family can attend and have a blast.”

On Thurs., Feb 2, 2012, convention participants will take part in a Honky Tonk Party, sponsored by Boehringher Ingelheim Vetmedica, at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel featuring bluegrass favorites the Cumberland Highlanders and Ronnie Reno, sponsored by RFD-TV. The following day, Bayer Animal Health is sponsoring a Cowboy’s Night at the Opry and Barn Dance, where country music stars including Josh Turner, The Oakridge Boys, Charley Pride, Little Jimmy Dickens and more will take the stage at the Grand Ole Opry. Local artists will keep attendees entertained throughout the week on various stages around the NCBA Trade Show. Donald said the event promises to be an experience that will be talked about for years to come.
