Women Managing Cattle is a program for farm women to meet, share their experiences in the cattle industry, and learn from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach specialists. Women are important in agriculture, and the cattle business is no different. The Women Managing Cattle program hopes to build relationships and educate women in the cattle business by focusing on cost of production, marketing strategies and production systems.
The financial climate for cow-calf producers has been “stormy,” but a Pasture Walk in northwest Iowa provided 39 producers and agri-business staff with information on how to “weather” the storm.
Keeping young producers involved in the cattle industry, when there is such a strong focus on profitability, has long been a challenge. Learn about the Young Cattleman Project in eastern Iowa.
