The 39th Annual Florida Cattlemen’s Institute & Allied Trade Show, slated for January 13th, has moved to Sebring.

Florida cattle ranchers and industry partners should mark their calendars for the 39th Annual Florida Cattlemen’s Institute & Allied Trade Show, scheduled for January 13th at a new venue. Attendees will find the new venue at the Highlands County Fairgrounds in Sebring, Florida. According to a South-Florida Beef Forage Program article, the “planning committee for this program considered the developing demand for labeled beef and the questions that Florida ranchers have about marketing their animals differently. This program is being offered to address those questions and provides ranchers the opportunity to ask questions of experts in this field. See the details below.
