The 90th annual National Block and Bridle Convention was
held in Louisville, Kentucky during November 12th-14th.
The three day convention consisted of opening and closing ceremonies
along with recognition of outstanding members and clubs.
addition, Friday consisted of a tour to three sites; Akers Angus
Beef Cattle Farm, the Bourbon Whiskey distiller, and Altech
Biotechnology center. The Altech Biotechnology center has taken
genetics to another level and have extended the technology to be
able to looking at genomes of a variety of animals through a single
chip. Saturday of the convention consisted of N.A.I.L.E., where we
were able to attend a extended variety of livestock shows as well as
going through the trade market that was set up in the building as
well and was ended with a rodeo that we were encouraged to attend.
This event helped extend national relations to other
agriculturally involved Universities as well as extending relations
at a personal level through The Ohio State University and 'Block and
Bridle'. Below is students
