Fostering international livestock sales since 1984.
The National Western International Agribusiness department hosts over 500 international guests from over 30 countries during the annual Stock Show and works to build relationships between those guests and the ambassadors who support our international efforts. We strive to also provide educational programming geared to our international guests interests as well as students and producers with an interest in International agribusiness.
International Livestock Forum (ILF)
The International Livestock Forum (ILF) is an annual conference held at Colorado State University that brings together industry leaders and professionals to discuss domestic and international livestock and food production. Within the ILF is a unique opportunity for selected students from around the world to participate in the Student Fellowship Program, which invites students to attend the Forum, network with industry professionals, and get exclusive tours of local food and livestock operations, and the National Western Stock Show.
In partnership with Colorado State University. Learn more here.
The 9th Annual International Livestock Forum will be co-located with the Mountain Meat Summit in 2023!
We are excited about the opportunity to partner together to bring knowledge, connections, and innovation to members of the livestock and meat supply chains in Colorado and the Mountain West
