Dakota Fest is rapidly approaching.

You have helped us develop the Livestock Demo Tent into one of the Premier Attractions on the west side of the grounds. Thanks for all your help and hard work in the past…and we rely on you to make this year’s show better than ever. This year’s Dakota Fest dates are August 16-18.

The Cattle Team has three primary goals for this year’s Dakota Fest:

1. Client Appreciation - This is the largest client appreciation event in our area, the state and probably the world (The Cattle Team’s world at least).
2. Promote the Beef Industry, the Cattle Team and your company with the products and technology you provide to the Beef Team.
3. Developing better relationships between the Cattle Team and their clients and company representatives providing product and technology for the Cattle Team’s partners.
It’s a win-win-win for Everyone!
• Better understanding of new and emerging technologies
• Personal contact with company representatives
• Livestock handling and chute demonstrations
• The customary free “Cattle Team Apple”
o We polished over 2400 apples last year!
“Dinner with Doc” was very successful for its first year. We fed over 150 people daily as they were educated by our sponsors. I am sure most took home great new ideas on management & products. Our hope is to improve on last year and encourage more product participation while remembering our primary goal, PROMOTE BEEF! This year we will gather at 12:00 in the tent & serve lunch for “Dinner with Doc” …We Hope to See You!
