COLUMBUS — The 2018 National Angus Convention and Trade Show will take place Nov. 3-5 at the Columbus Convention Center.

The first weekend in November, Angus breeders, commercial cattlemen and allied industry partners join together to learn and set a vision for the future, participate in the organization’s Annual Convention of Delegates, take in the trade show and enjoy all the Angus history Ohio has to offer.

The 40th anniversary of Certified Angus Beef (CAB) will be the theme for this year’s convention.


Before the official start of the convention, the Ohio Angus Association will hold the National Angus Tour Nov. 2, where participants will spend a day exploring the area’s leading Angus operations and the Certified Angus Beef brand headquarters.


During the convention, guests will hear from keynote speakers that inspire forward thinking and vision for the future of the quality beef business through Angus University, sponsored by Merck Animal Health.

In breakout sessions, topics will range from cattle health and management to understanding genomics and evolving technology.

The Angus Genomics Symposium, sponsored by Neogen GeneSeek Operations, will feature presenters, academic professionals and industry leaders who will explore how producers can apply new ideas to their home operations.

Another workshop series from Zoetis will be featured, as well as prize giveaways and CAB brand meals served throughout the event.

Angus breeders receive exclusive booth discounts, and those interested in reserving space can visit the trade show section of the website.


The Angus Convention offers plenty of time for attendees to get to know one another, celebrate the Angus breed, and plan for the future.

A concert featuring Neal McCoy is planned for Nov. 4.


Registration and hotel reservations open July 1, and more information will be available online at
