Culver’s is celebrating agricultural education is by sponsoring FFA Day at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Trade Show in Phoenix, Arizona. The first 250 FFA members and advisors who register to attend the trade show on Friday, February 2, will receive free registration by using the promo code FFACULVERS.
FFA members are encouraged to wear their official dress to the trade show and to the Blue Jacket Custard Social, hosted by Culver’s, from 3 to 4 p.m. Culver’s will serve Fresh Frozen Custard at the social.
The NCBA trade show is the largest trade show in the cattle industry, with over 300 exhibitors and 7,000 industry professionals attending. It’s a great opportunity for FFA members to learn more about beef, cattle, and the future careers available to them in the industry.
FFA members, are you wondering what you might learn at the trade show? Here are some facts on the cattle industry to give you a taste for what’s in store:

- There are 727,906 beef farms and ranches in the United States.

- Annually, the average American eats 55.7 pounds of beef.
