The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Cattle Industry Convention is January 31 through February 2 in Phoenix. The oldest and largest national convention for the cattle industry features networking opportunities, a chance to create industry policy, an outstanding trade show and the popular Cattlemen’s College, sponsored by Zoetis.

The Cattlemen’s College offers a number of seminars: antibiotic alternatives and the future of treating diseases; building a healthy herd; business and economics; the best of the West; and much more.

The 2017 Zoetis AQHA Best Remuda Award winner, Silver Spur Operating Co., will also be recognized during the convention. Silver Spur encompasses historic ranches in four states, and a rich and diverse cattle and equine operation. Owned by Silver Spur Land and Cattle LLC and managed by Thad York, the Silver Spur operates in Wyoming, New Mexico, Nebraska and Colorado. The original Silver Spur ranch at Encampment, Wyoming, was homesteaded in 1879 by Albert H. Huston. After more than 130 years, the operation grew to include four Wyoming ranches, four Colorado ranches, the historic TO and Bell ranches in New Mexico, and feedlot and farming operations in Nebraska.
