Why Have The Conference?
The beef industry is at a major crossroads.  Production costs have escalated significantly over the past several years -- challenging beef producers to address higher feed inputs, land costs, and operating expenses in order to remain cost competitive.  The southern Iowa and northern Missouri area has the resources and the opportunity to again take a prominent place in the beef industry.  The Cornbelt Cow-Calf Conference provides the forum for all segments of cattle production to address these issues, discuss new technology, and provide vision for the future of the cattle industry.  The event is open to all persons interested in beef production without regard to race, color, sex, or national origin.
