Ready for NCBA Convention

We'll be honest. We look for any reason to get ourselves over to San Antonio, Texas, and especially the Riverwalk. So naturally, anytime the NCBA Convention comes down to Texas, we sign up right away! ESPECIALLY if the headquarter hotel involves the Marriott River Center.

So in just a few days, we'll be packing up and heading to the Alamo City to spend a few days with many of our clients and fellow beef producers at the National Cattlemen's Beef Association Cattle Industry Convention.

I will be representing RHD at the convention on January 28 and 29, and helping with the NCBA Judging Contest on Friday.

Personally, I can't wait to get to the convention to buddy up with my Texas A&M University partners in crime, Cassie Schulte, Tara Hoescher, and Dr. Kim McCuistion. Of course, we'll be eating at Casa Rio, and strolling down the riverwalk.

We are really excited about seeing a lot of our beef industry clients at this event, so if you'll be there, drop us an e-mail so we'll know to be keeping an eye out for you. We'll be taking lots of snapshots for the blog. And if you are a blog reader who has been thinking of doing business with RHD, look for us at the convention. We'd love to hang out and talk business!


  1. Will definitely be there! And since you guys are so familiar with the area, do you think you might suggest some of your favorite places to eat?

  2. My favorite is Casa Rio on the riverwalk!! Ahhh I love it!!! There is an italian restaurant that is right by the River Center Marriot that I would avoid. It's good food but has some bad after-effects. If you go off the riverwalk there is Jim Miller BBQ which is good, Little Red Barn is good too. A cool place is the Magic Time Machine, the food isn't that great but the atmosphere is neat, all of the waiters dress up in theme costumes.
