If you want to know where this year's Cattlemen's College and trade show is, just head to Houston and follow the cowboy hats. Thousands are in attendance at the 2022 meeting, taking place at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Feb. 1-3.

The National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) reports there are nearly 10 acres of trade show for attendees to experience this year. New equipment, the latest in technology, pharmaceuticals and live cattle handling demonstrations are all located on the trade show floor that opens Tuesday afternoon with a kick-off reception. In addition, this year, the Learning Lounge will be available for educational presentations of importance to those in the cattle business.

The convention has long been known as a great place to network with others in the cattle business both from the U.S. and around the world.

This year's emcee for the general sessions will be Buzz Brainard, host of "The Music Row Happy Hour" on Sirius XM. Noted speakers scheduled for the week include Hall of Fame boxer George Foreman, CattleFax analysts, British Ambassador Dame Karen Pierce and two-time Pro Bowl player Joe Theismann.

Cattlemen's College will be focused on business resources to help producers in the areas of risk management, health, genetics, nutrition, conservation and profitability.
