The Iowa Custom Cattle Feeders

The Iowa Cattlemen's Association is prepares an annual Iowa Custom Cattle Feeders Directory that is included in the Iowa Cattleman magazine. We want you to be part of it!

The ICCF directory is dedicated to promoting Iowa feedlots as the best place to feed cattle. Throughout the year, the ICA receives numerous phone calls in regard to the locations and services offered by Iowa custom feedlots. The directory is sent to everyone who requests the feedlots listing.

The ICA is working hard to help promote Iowa as a great place to custom-feed cattle. The advantages are obvious – Iowa grows the feed and has excellent and inexpensive co-products now available from a growing ethanol industry. Iowa’s hard- working farm families provide personal service and will share information, such as carcass data, with their customers. Iowa has many close-by processors interested in the high-quality cattle fed here. Many bankers and lenders in Iowa understand agriculture and are willing to work with custom feedlots.

The ICCF Directory is included in the July issue of the Iowa Cattleman magazine. The magazine is mailed to more than 10,000 ICA members and affiliated businesses. The directory is also distributed at ICA events such as the ICA booth at the Iowa State Fair, ICA district meetings each fall, the ICA Conferences and Iowa Beef Expo. In addition to this issue being available at the events mentioned, all information is listed on our Web site for easy access to those looking for custom feeding.

Costs to list your feedlot in the ICCF Directory is $150. For this issue we also give discounts on advertising in the Iowa Cattleman magazine. Watch for those specials! Don't miss this chance to reach thousands of potential clients and show your continued support for a steadily expanding segment of the beef industry – cattle feeding in Iowa!
