ICA Feedlot Forum
March 3, 2016 5:00 pm @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Iowa Cattlemen’s Association has three educational events scheduled for feedlot operators in March.
The feedlot forums will offer a market outlook and discussion on the quickly approaching Veterinary Feed Directive. Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to area producers share their environmental compliance stories and learn from state officials the state’s response plan during a Foreign Animal Disease outbreak. The events are free and include meals and a trade show.
Nick Albright, Calhoun County cattleman, praised ICA’s forums. “After attending the feedlot forum, I was extremely impressed with the diversity and relevance of topics. The speakers were knowledgeable and the layout of the conference was relaxed and gave attendees a chance to interact with the speakers, and sponsors to ask questions and learn about their products.”
The next three forums will be held in early March:
Wednesday, March 2, Osage Public Safety Center, Osage, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Thursday, March 3, Jones County Extension Office, Monticello, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Thursday, March 3, Blue Grass Community Center, Blue Grass, 5 p. m. – 9 p. m.
Contact the ICA office at 515-296-2266 to RSVP.
ICA will also hold pasture walks and other educational events around the state later this year in order to provide each segment of the cattle industry information on critical topics.
