Honor medAllion

The Iowa Cattlemen's Foundation Honor Medallion recognizes influencers who have left a legacy, championed, and supported Iowa's cattle industry.


The Iowa beef cattle industry thrives thanks to those who have a dedicated passion for the industry, whether as a producer, supporter, or influencer. The Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation recognizes that there are great champions within the industry who continue to make their mark. Now it’s our turn to recognize these legacies by offering a new program that will represent their remarkable contributions -- the Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation Honor Medallions. 


These ‘one-of-a-kind’ patented, bronze medallions feature the Iowa Cattlemen Care logo and are exclusive to the Iowa Cattlemen’s Foundation. All medallions purchased come with a certificate and will be recorded and registered in a master directory. This directory will be available online and honorees will be recognized at the annual Iowa Cattlemen’s Association banquet. 


The Iowa Cattlemen's Foundation, a 501(c)3 affiliate of the Iowa Cattlemen's Association, provides financial support for opportunities to advance the Iowa cattle business and enhance the public perception of the cattle industry. They have successfully done so through a variety of programs, specifically with the development of educational activities, such as the Youth Beef Team, Beef Scholarship Extravaganza, and the support of the Iowa Cattlemen's Leadership Program. When you purchase an Honor Medallion, you not only receive the medallion in appreciation of your honoree, but you are financially contributing to the legacy of the Iowa Cattlemen's Foundation.
