The mission of the Iowa Cattlemen's Association is "Grow Iowa's beef business through advocacy, leadership and education."  The annual Iowa Cattle Industry Leadership Summit offers all three components in a day and a half event.  The lineup will tackle diverse topics such as Fake Meat and what NCBA and the Beef Checkoff are doing, foreign animal diseases and what to expect in an outbreak, and how to protect your livelihood against legal attacks. It's no secret that it has been a trying year in the business which makes it even more critical that you attend this year and give input towards solutions.
Keynote: Andy Curliss, CEO North Carolina Pork Council
With his presentation titled "Up close and personal: How unfair attacks hurt us all" Andy will take attendees through his experience dealing with nuisance lawsuits in North Carolina and give input on how to protect your livelihood.
Danielle Beck, NCBA
How is the beef industry responding to the rise in fake meat products? Danielle Beck, NCBA, will share the strategies used by the Check off and Policy teams at NCBA as they advocate for beef as the number one protein on consumer' minds and plates.

Foreign Animal Disease
With African Swine Fever threatening the world’s hog operations, now is a good time to consider what would happen if a similar disease were to affect Iowa’s cattle industry. The session will be led by Andrew Hennefent, the IDALS Emergency Management Coordinator, and Dr. Danelle Bickett-Weddle from the Center for Food Security and Public Health at ISU.
