ICA Cattle Calls

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to host our annual Cattlemen at the Capitol event. While boots will be missed in the Capitol Rotunda, rest assured, legislators will be treated to a hearty beef lunch to remind them of the economic value and the legacy of Iowa’s beef cattle industry. 

To keep our priorities top of mind during the 89th General Assembly, we’ve adapted to provide opportunities for members to engage directly with elected officials. 

Three virtual ICA Cattle Calls will take place throughout the 2021 Legislative Session. Each Zoom meeting offers a unique opportunity for members to connect with key decision makers in a casual, conversational setting. 

Meetings are scheduled for 30 minutes—the perfect amount of time to drink a fresh cup of coffee and warm up after a morning of chores. 


As of March 4, we have confirmed participation from the following legislators: Sens. Driscoll, Green, and Klimesh, and Reps. Nordman, Latham, Ingels, Boden, and Bush.
