His knowledge of technologies and their implications on the way we live and will be the theme of his upbeat presentation. Dr. Catlett’s vast knowledge astounds corporate and association audiences both national and internationally. The presentation promises to be through provoking and highly entertaining.


After Dr. Catlett’s presentation, Angus Genetics, Inc., will present an engaging panel discussion. The panel will feature Dr. Dan Moser, AGI president; Dr. Stephen Miller, AGI genetic research director; and Kelli Retallick, AGI genetic service director. The AGI team will lead a discussion on how genetic technology is progressing at an ever-increasing rate and how that will impact Angus breeders’ herds on a daily basis.
