Educational Events

ICA BeefMeets 

We are making it easier than ever for cattle producers to attend by hosting four meetings around the state, each taking place from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Each event will include education on policy and production, industry updates, a tradeshow and meal. Not only will you learn about topics affecting your beef business, but it’s a great opportunity to voice your concerns and work towards solutions with ICA staff and leaders. 

Grassroots Feedback

What issues should be ICA’s top priorities in the coming year? Are there laws or regulations that are hurting your business? These are all important questions that ICA is seeking input on. Grassroots breakout sessions provide an opportunity for members to share their concerns, ideas, and input to help set policy priorities for their association in the future. 

This year we have selected keynotes to focus on giving our producers the opportunity to hear more about beef beyond the gate, consumer demands and ways to add value. The regional BeefMeets provide Iowa producers information from industry specialists on enhancing the bottom line.

Dates and Locations:

  • June 7 | 5:00 p.m. - SW Region
  • June 9 | 5:00 p.m. - NW Region
  • June 14 | 5:00 p.m. - NE Region 
  • June 16 | 5:00 p.m. - SE Region 

Each event will feature a trade show with the latest products and services for all cattle producers.

If you have any questions, please contact Callie Hicks at [email protected] or 515-296-2266.
