As we post the results and photos of this year’s HBC weekend, we want to thank all of the exhibitors, sponsors, and volunteers that helped make the 31st Hoosier Beef Congress such a great success. It is a huge task to plan and prepare for a show of this magnitude and to maintain some sort of order during the weekend, but the HBC Committee and all of the volunteers are great at doing just that. It would be impossible to hold this treasured event without the countless hours of time and personal resources that the committee and volunteers donate.
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 of 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All of the videos of the 2017 HBC Showmanship and Junior Shows have been archived and are available for viewing at www.waltonwebcasting.com.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 2018 HBC which is scheduled to take place November 30-December 2, 2018. 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 2018 HBC!
