Members of the cast of “Yellowstone” took #CattleCon23 by storm this year with farmers and ranchers lining up for photo ops and autographs. But for Forrie J. Smith, who plays head ranch hand Lloyd Pierce in the hit television drama, the Cattle Industry Convention was like a homecoming.
“We love it here,” Smith said. “We’re with our people.”
While there were many red-carpet moments at the event, held Jan. 31-Feb. 2 in New Orleans, at the heart of the more than three-day event was providing beef producers with information and education on issues relating to their industry.
The Farm Progress team traveled throughout the Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show and gathered highlights from the event. Click through the photo gallery above to see and read more. Who knows, you might just recognize a few familiar faces.
