The Iowa Cattlemen’s Association has been focused on price discovery, market transparency and producer leverage for nearly a decade, but even more so within the last year due to extreme market disruptions.
“As the voice of Iowa’s beef business, ICA has led the development of solutions to address cattle marketing concerns,” says Matt Deppe, CEO. “Producers from each sector in the beef cattle industry rely on price discovery and transparency. We need more information to help us better negotiate marketing agreements with buyers.”
In Nov., ICA will host 10 in-person cattle marketing meetings across the state to provide important updates to producers and solicit grassroots input to help shape the discussion in the coming months. Anyone who is interested is encouraged to attend and help build better opportunities for Iowa’s cattle producers. You don’t have to be a member of ICA to attend and learn about important marketing issues.
