Saddle up and head on down to the Colorado Independent CattleGrowers Association 12th annual convention July 14th through the 15th in Fort Morgan, Colorado. As always, during the convention, we intend to uphold our grassroots values, enforce policy that betters the future for generations to come, and educate fellow producers.
This convention will be held at the Clarion Inn Fort Morgan (14378 US Highway 34). Speakers include Dr. Tom Noffsinger, KrisAnne Hall, Dr. Dennis Hermesch, and Bill Bullard (R-CALF CEO).
Beginning on Friday, Dr. Tom Noffsinger is a Colorado State University Alumni from a family farm in Wray, Colorado. Dr. Noffsinger gained his veterinary knowledge from CSU and joined a mixed practice after his graduation. He then graduated from the Beef Production Management Series at the Great Plains Veterinary Education Center in 1994. Bud Williams changed the way Noffsinger worked with cattle. Noffsinger believes that making a low stress and positive experience for the you and the cattle is key.
KrisAnne Hall is an expert when it comes to the Constitution. She has taught on average 265 classes each year about the Bill of Rights,
Constitution, and how to preserve those rights. She has been awarded the Freedom Fighter award, Congressman James Blair award for Defending the Constitution, and the Certificate of achievement from the Sons of the Revolution for her defense of Liberty.
Killed vaccines and preventing diseases is Dr. Dennis Hermesch’s forte. Dr. Hermesch worked for Novartis as a professional services veterinarian. Now, he works for Phibro Animal Health.
Our friend Bill Bullard will make an appearance at the convention as well. Mr. Bullard will be giving the R- CALF report and will be answering any questions you have. Bill Bullard is the current CEO of R-CALF.
The 12th annual Convention will be a hit as always. There will be a silent and live auction, fantastic food, educational opportunities, as well as social time. We hope to see you at our 12th Annual CICA Convention.
