Plan to Attend the International Livestock Congress (ILC) at the Calgary Stampede

The Calgary Stampede is about celebrating our western roots and bringing out the inner cowboy in all of us. The Beef business continues to play a huge role in that history and will play a role in the future. On July 10th I will be attending the International Livestock Congress (ILC), Beef 2009: Firing Up Science and Innovation during the Stampede and based on what I am hearing from people you should too.

I get invited to many industry events and the ILC 2009 is on my calendar for this year so I hope to see you there. If you want to meet up at the conference please send me an email.
