Once again this year we welcome our co-sponsors: The Wisconsin Angus Association, The Wisconsin Hereford Association and The Wisconsin Shorthorn Association.
The Wisconsin Cattlemen's Association and cooperating organizations hope to build on the success of the joint conference that was held last year.
