As we post the results and photos of this year’s HBC weekend, we want to thank the HBC Committee, all the exhibitors, sponsors, and volunteers that helped make the 32nd Hoosier Beef Congress such a great success. It is a huge task to plan and prepare for a show like this one and to make it as enjoyable as possible for everyone. It would be impossible to host this treasured event without the countless hours of time and personal resources that are given by the committee and volunteers.
I would also like to send out a special thanks to the IBCA staff that put in many weeks of hard work to prepare for and execute the show. Brian, Maggie, Callie and Greg are all committed to providing the best experience possible for all our junior exhibitors. Finally, special recognition must go out to HBC committee chair Rick Seehase and junior show chair Barry Wesner for their leadership throughout the year.
All of the videos of the 2018 HBC Showmanship and Junior Shows have been archived and are available for viewing at www.waltonwebcasting.com.
We will soon be making plans for the 2019 HBC which is scheduled to take place December 6-8, 2019. If you have any ideas of how we can make the next Hoosier Beef Congress even better, don’t hesitate to pass along your recommendations to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the IBCA offices at 317-293-2333.
Also don’t forget to support and participate in the Indiana’s Finest Points program this spring and summer being coordinated by the Indiana Junior Beef Cattle Association. A schedule of participating shows will be posted at www.ijbca.org.
Thanks again to everyone and looking forward to seeing you at the 2019 HBC!
