Feedlot Forums 2017
The next event we will be attending this year will be the Feedlot Forum. The Iowa Cattlemen’s Association (ICA) is working to help producers with farm management, particularly in the face of profitability challenges, and will be hosting two educational events in western Iowa January 2017 that incorporate risk management strategies. In partnership with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, the first Feedlot Forum will be held Tuesday, Jan. 17, in Sioux Center. The topics covered include the Veterinary Feed Directive, feedlot assessments, market volatility, market prices, and industry updates. The second Feedlot Forum will be held the next day, Wednesday, Jan. 18, in Carroll. This event will cover topics that are timely and important to the future success of Iowa’s feedlot producers, including market volatility, prices, changes to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) manure rules, and the Iowa beef checkoff.
Lastly, for now, is The Cornbelt Cow-Calf Conference on January 28th, 2017 in Ottumwa, Iowa. This is one of the longest running and most successful conferences of its kind in the Midwest. For over forty years, the conference has provided an opportunity for producers, researchers, and over 100 industry representatives to come together to explore current topics and issues. This concentrated one-day conference focuses on management and production practices that contribute to making the cow-calf business profitable and competitive on a long-term basis.
