LEWISTON, Idaho – May 6th, 2019 – The Idaho Cattle Association welcomes Washington Cattlemen’s Association as co-hosts for the 2019 Summer Round Up convention in Lewiston, Idaho June 23rd– 25th, 2019 at the Red Lion.
Summer Round Up is an annual event that cattlemen and women look forward to attending each and every year. The three-day event will kick off with an all-day jet boat tour of five rivers consisting of the Clearwater, Grande Ronde, Salmon, Imnaha, and the Snake River of Hells Canyon. Intermittent stops at historical points of interest will allow participants to discover numerous geological facts, view diverse and abundant wildlife and plant life, all while enjoying the thrill of many different classes of rapids. Day one will come to an end at Granite Lake Park where a delicious tri-tip dinner will be served, thanks to our friends at Agri Beef and Performix.
Day two and the morning of day three will be filled with an abundance of educational sessions that will pique the interest of any industry member including discussions about soil health, interstate cattle movement, cattle markets, wildlife and predator issues, public land grazing, and much more. Following day two’s meetings will be the Cattle Baron’s Bash, hosted by the Idaho Beef Council.
The convention will come to an end on Tuesday afternoon, following morning meetings, with the choice of two fun activities. The first being a rangeland tour of both private and public ground. On this tour, attendees will learn how local producers use different landscapes, while also discussing the need for greater flexibility in management in order for the land to be best utilized across public/private ownership boundaries.
At the same time, the JR Simplot Memorial Golf Tournament will kick off at the Lewiston Country Club. Teams of four will be competing for the championship buckles and many other wonderful awards. There is even an opportunity for an individual who gets a hole in one at the designated hole to win a brand-new Powder River hydraulic squeeze chute.
Summer Round Up is an event for both producers and allied industry folks and we invite you to join the Idaho Cattle Association and the Washington Cattlemen’s Association for the 2019 Summer Round Up.
