The Iowa Cattlemen’s Association will host three educational programs during the month of March. Madyson Thill, ICA southeast member services said each program will include a meal, educational sessions, a trade show, and an industry update from the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association and Iowa Beef Industry Council.
“We felt it was important to bring more educational opportunities to you this year. Each forum in March will feature guest speakers talking about a variety of industry topics and a trade show with vendors ready to share their newest products and technologies to help make your operation more efficient and profitable,” she said.
On March 1, in Washington, Iowa, Stockguard will discuss the importance of preparing and protecting your operation from declines in market practices for financial stability. Carl Babler will also provide a Cattle Market Outlook update that evening.
Babler will also travel to Keystone, Iowa, on March 21 for the Benton County Cattle Producer Forum. In addition to Babler’s Cattle Market Outlook update, other industry updates and tips will be shared.
The final Cattle Producer Forum will be held on March 28 in Newton, Iowa. Attendees can again count on hearing from Stockguard as well as from Deb Klopenstein of Purina on preparing cow-calf pairs for pasture.
Producers can register to attend by calling 515-296-2266. Registration is not required, but appreciated. Walk-ins are welcome. Non-members are encouraged to attend for $20.
