The Iowa Cattlemen’s Association will host three free educational events for feedlot producers in eastern Iowa in March, including one in Cascade.
The Cascade event will take place from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 12, at Knights of Columbus Hall, 100 Thomas St. SE. The others will be in Charles City and Williamsburg.
Each feedlot forum will include a meal, a trade show, an update from the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association and Iowa Beef Industry Council and three educational speakers.
Craig Belknap, of Diamond V, a global nutrition and health company, will cover the topics of immunity, health and performance, and how you can improve your own cattle operation.
Scott Yager, from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, will give an environmental regulations update. Producers can give feedback on some issues that they are facing on the home front.
Paul Mussman, of AgWest Commodities, will provide the market outlook.
Producers can RSVP by calling 515-296-2266 or at www.iacattlemen.org. Walk-ins also are welcome.
