National Angus Tour – Friday, Nov. 2

This year’s tour includes two stops: The Certified Angus Beef headquarters in Wooster, Ohio, and Claylick Run Farms in Newark, Ohio. The tour will be split into two bus groups, alternating locations between the morning and afternoon.

Get an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look inside the Certified Angus Beef campus from recipe development to digital marketing and everything in between. The stop will include an office and resource center tour staffed by the supply development team, as well as educational sessions with Chef Tony Biggs. The Culinary Center is a unique facility that allows for custom, immersive learning opportunities, including meat labs and cooking demonstrations. Most guests are chefs, retailers and meat marketers, but it’s relevant to all Angus breeders who want to learn more about the Science Behind the Sizzle. Plus, receive 20% off Black Hide Collection merchandise for pre-convention tour participants.

At Claylick Run Farms, Ohio Angus breeders will have cattle on display, and Select Sires will have a presentation prepared.

Participants will have the opportunity to spend time learning about the operations, hearing from speakers and, of course, viewing outstanding Angus cattle.

Tour buses will depart the Greater Columbus Convention Center at 7:00 a.m., Friday, Nov. 2 and return around 6:00 p.m. A delicious Certified Angus Beef brand lunch is included for all those on the tour. The National Angus Tour is a ticketed event that requires advance registration of $75 to ride the bus. No-self driving option this year. You definitely won’t leave hungry!
