Statewide Beef Bash

Saturday, May 5th & Sunday, May 6th


We are excited to offer a fun and educational weekend opportunity for any youth interested in beef in grades 9th – 12th. 

Join us in Northeast Iowa on May 4th, 5th and 6th for our fourth annual Beef Bash.  We will be staying in Charles City.  This year’s tours will start on Friday night at Scott and Tracy McGreogor’s and Travis Jones’s farms where we’ll learn about their cow/calf and feedlot operations.  Saturday we’ll visit a packing plant, a sale barn, Iowa’s largest feedlot under roof, the Sand Mines on the Mississippi River, and we’ll finish our day at a dairy with yogurt samples!   We finish on Sunday with a session on GMO’s, using social media and herd management discussions.  Meals will be provided by Chickasaw, Floyd, Winneshiek and Clayton County Cattlemen.  We are limiting participants to 30 so get your registrations in.  Registration deadline is April 15th.  You can access the registration form here, or call or email Mary at #641-425-1533 or
