Arthur Uhl, the president of the association, was thrilled about the event, calling it a “tremendous success.” Bring together cattle raisers to discuss and decide on matters that mean a lot to them. 

At the meeting, the members got to vote on various policies and even approved a strategic plan. This plan is set to steer the association’s direction all the way until 2029.
