2. Maynard Jayne Scholars Program

Applications can be found at For more information, please contact Mary Greiman at or 641-425-1533.

Maynard Jayne Scholarship

The Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation is currently accepting scholarship applications in honor of the late Maynard Jayne. The Jayne Family has graciously donated memorial monies as well as their own funds to develop the Maynard Jayne Scholars program.

Maynard Jayne was a long time Iowa Cattlemen’s Association employee. He began his career as a field representative and helped increase membership numbers across the state. His greatest contribution, though, was as a lobbyist for ICA at our State Capitol. Maynard’s industry knowledge and his ability to bring the right people together made him a highly respected key player at the state legislature.

Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation will be awarding the Jayne Scholar at the Leadership Summit this coming December. The deadline for application submission is November 15th.

Beef Scholarship Extravaganza
