The yearly Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show brings together producers and their families from across the country. And this year’s event in early August will be free to FFA members. To encourage young people to participate, Culver’s is sponsoring “FFA Day” at the NCBA Trade Show on Thursday, August 12th in Nashville, TN. The first 250 FFA members to register will get complimentary NCBA Trade Show admission, courtesy of Culvers. The hope is this will provide an opportunity for the industry’s youth to gather, learn, and share ideas. The restaurant chain will also share their custard during a “blue jacket social” for FFA members and alumni.

“The future of the industry depends on the next generation, so we encourage FFA members to join us in Nashville,” says Kristin Torres, NCBA executive director of meetings and events. “The NCBA Trade Show offers so many educational and networking opportunities that it is important for young people to attend and gain valuable experience.”

FFA members should use the code “FFACULVERS” to get free admission. Those members who don’t get a chance at the free tickets can still get a significantly discounted rate of $30 per person.

The NCBA Trade Show runs August 10th-12th.
