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. There are many indutry related meeting through the season but ILC seems to draw the “people” in the business. Known as a great networking event, I am looking forward to trying to get a great handle on where the attendees and speakers think the Canadian beef business needs to move in the future.

ILC 2009 Speaker Lineup

I will be covering the event with video interviews and Twitter but I do encourage you to attend in person and view my coverage later as a reminder and archive. This will be similiar to my coverage of the Crop Production Show and Tiffin Conference earlier this year. 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.
