Past Summits

The 2024 Mountain Meat Summit advanced market opportunities, built connections, and supported collective skills development and learning across many segments and scales of the Mountain Region’s meat supply chain. The summit did this by: a) providing education and technical assistance to various segments of the meat industry, driving innovation and solution development; b) fostering networking and collaboration among rural and urban stakeholders, thus supporting new market opportunities and enhanced understanding about the realities of ranching and processing; and, c) leverage land-grant University and partner resources, expertise, and assets to support diverse scales and models across the meat supply chain. The agenda for the event can be found here.

The 2023 Mountain Meat Summit was a joint event with the 9th annual International Livestock Forum. The event brought together industry leaders, government professionals, and members of academia to discuss domestic and international livestock and food production. Participants were invited to join on a unique tour of Colorado’s livestock and meat enterprises, behind-the-scenes access to the National Western Stock Show and the new CSU Spur campus. The event was hosted by Colorado State University Department of Animal Sciences, the National Western Stock Show, and the National Meat Summit Committee. The agenda for the event can be found HERE
