Independent Cattlemen of Nebraska host 6th annual convention in Valentine

It’s convention time in Nebraska again and the Independent Cattlemen of Nebraska (ICON) have scheduled their 6th annual convention on Saturday, Sept. 24, in Valentine, NE, at the Peppermill.

ICON extends an invitation to cow-calf and livestock producers around the state to attend and spend a day with fellow ranchers and farmers as conversation centers around the future of agriculture and livestock production in Nebraska. The registration table opens at 8 a.m. and all convention activities will take place in the Peppermill, including the noon luncheon which is included in the convention registration fee. The evening banquet will also be held at the Peppermill but there will be an additional fee of $25 for the prime rib meal.

The morning session includes a Nebraska State Senators’ Panel. State Senators expected to attend at this time are Abbie Cornett, LeRoy Louden and Ty Larson. The afternoon session will include a presentation from UNL Extension Educator Scott Cotton about passing the ranch onto the next generation. Also speaking in the afternoon will be ICON member Sherry Vinton on the Environmental Trust. ICON member Tanya Storer will also be on hand as a speaker. It should be a good day filled with lively conversation.



A business meeting will precede a social hour and the evening banquet. Any ICON members who own cattle and have paid memberships are allowed to vote during the business meeting. Each district will have the opportunity to elect a director from their region if necessary. Resolutions to be considered will include the national and state brand laws.

A juicy prime rib dinner will precede the evening’s entertainment. The evening speaker will be an enjoyable presentation by cowboy poet R.P. Smith of Broken Bow.



Registration fees for this year’s ICON convention will be $50. If the 2012 yearly ICON dues of $50 are included with the registration, a discount of $10 can be taken off the convention fee. Additional guests accompanying a paid convention registration can register for $20. Evening banquet fees of $25 are extra for all registrations. Registrations for overnight accommodations can be made by calling the Super 8 Motel in Valentine, 402-376-1250.

A silent auction will be conducted during the daylong event as an additional fundraiser for ICON and the Jim Hanna Memorial Scholarship.

It’s that time of year when ICON and its members want to talk about the future of cattle production in Nebraska. The ICON Directors invite you to come and join the discussion.
