The Iowa Beef Expo has showcased Iowa’s beef industry for nearly 50 years, providing a place for purebred breeders to market their stock and junior showmen to exhibit their animals.

This year’s event featured individual breed sales, the supreme drive of champion breed animals, a livestock judging contest, award presentations and the junior show. The Supreme Champion sale bull was awarded to the Angus bull, consigned by Jensen Angus Farm of Plainfield, Iowa. The Supreme Champion sale heifer was awarded to the Simmental heifer, consigned by Gerdes Show Cattle of West Point, Iowa.

The 2023 Seedstock Producer of the Year was presented to Greenman Family Angus of Garner, Iowa, and the 2023 Friend of the Iowa Beef Expo award was given to Terry Woiwood of Garner. The expo concluded with the naming of the Top 5 Junior Breeding Heifers and Market Animals. Drew Jacobson of Osceola, Iowa, showed the Grand Champion Market Animal and Sara Sullivan of Dunlap, Iowa, showed the Grand Champion Breeding Heifer.
