Every year, TCFA hosts or participates in a variety of special events. Some are specifically for TCFA members, and others are open to the public. TCFA Annual Convention, the TCFA Fed Beef Challenge, Junior Fed Beef Challenge and Feedyard Camp are highly anticipated special events that members and the public look forward to each year.

The Association is also involved in the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Annual Convention and Summer Conference, as well as the NCBA Fall Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. Throughout the year, there are multiple seminars and workshops covering specific programs for cattlemen.
