Richard Picciotto, the highest ranking New York City Firefighter to survive the September 11, 2001, attacks and author of Last Man Down, and Karl Rove, former deputy chief of staff and senior advisor to President George W. Bush, will be featured keynote speakers during the General Sessions. Convention attendees will also have the opportunity to attend a tailgate party at Invesco Field, home of the Denver Broncos, as well as to be entertained by Larry the Cable Guy and cowboy poet Baxter Black.
“We’ve put together a top-notch lineup of speakers, entertainers and cattle industry experts for the Rocky Mountain Round-Up,” said Steve Foglesong, NCBA president. “As we prepare to enter a new year with many new faces in Congress, the Convention will give NCBA members an opportunity to build on the successes of 2010 and prepare to address the challenges and opportunities facing our industry in 2011 and beyond. Register today to attend what is shaping up to be one of the best Cattle Industry Conventions yet.”
The Rocky Mountain Round-Up will also feature the annual NCBA Trade Show with more than 270 exhibitors and the 18th annual Cattlemen’s College.
