Interacting with the community is something we like to do and attending events is just one of the ways we do that. Through the course of the year Alberta Beef Producers attends over 75 events throughout Alberta ranging from large to small and everywhere in between.
Events are a great way for the community and even producers to hear what is happening in the Alberta Beef industry. ABP ensures that we always have a knowledgeable staff in attendance to meet and greet everyone who talks to us. And if that’s not enough, ABP loves to hand out free promotional items such as stickers, recipes, informational booklets, pens, pencils, and others.
Check out the events calendar and come join us at one of the many events we attend every year. We look forward to seeing you there.
