The Iowa State Fair kicks off on Thursday in Des Moines. We have been previewing many of our commodity groups and their activities at the fair. The Iowa Cattlemen’s Association will be present in many locations during many activities.

Audio: Full Interview with Katie Olthoff

Katie Olthoff is Communications Director for the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association. She talks about how they are going to have their booth geared towards the producers and the consumers of Iowa beef.

Olthoff says they will also be selling shirts to show your support of the cattle industry and for you to show your Hawkeye or Cyclone spirit.

Not only will the Cattlemen be advocating for the industry in the barns, but they will also be serving some great beef products. Olthoff tells you how you can get coupons for the Cattlemen’s Beef Quarters and even order ahead with their app.

The Cattlemen also bring the Iowa congressional delegation through the barns and help advocate for policy on behalf of the Iowa beef industry, as well as the entire state economy.

The Iowa State Fair runs August 8th through the 18th.
