The Webster County Cattlemen's Association will hold its annual banquet at 6 p.m. on March 26, in the east side of the Webster County Fairgrounds' auditorium.
A social gathering is at 6 p.m. and the meal will be served at 6:30 p.m., followed by the program.
The new state chief executive officer, Matt Deppe, will be present.
Dean Black, a cattle feeder from Somers, will discuss his trip to Japan last fall as part of the beef checkoff program.
