Idaho Has More Cowboys, You Just Can't See them From The Road

Idaho has more cowboys, you just can’t see them from the road -- but you can see them in SunValley this November 12th - 14th at the Idaho Cattle Association’s Annual Convention and Tradeshow.

The annual ICA event is focused on the cattlemen’s needs, putting you face-to-face with some of the industry’s most renowned experts. We will showcase vendors and speakers that mean something to you and your operation - and hope that you will leave our convention with a new network of friends and newly obtained knowledge.

Below are just a few of the speakers and activities that we will be offering at this year’s convention. To add to the list there will be a Cattlemen’s College sponsored by Zoetis and Northwest Farm Credit Services, the Idaho Beef Council Luncheon, several break out sessions that will include quickbooks training, environmental and public lands policy updates, and lastly the famous President’s Banquet, where you will enjoy some of the best prime rib with great company and good times.
