Cattlemen met in Altoona this week for the Iowa Beef Industry's 41st
annual convention. Iowa Cattlemen's Association CEO Matt Deppe says the
event was designed to appeal to a diverse group of beef producers.
The three-day event began with a ten-session Cattlemen's College. Deppe
highlights a few of the topics that include heifer development,
marketing and risk management, animal health, and coming FDA regulation
on antibiotic use.
