On February 4 and 5, 2016, Extension specialists in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin are again cooperating to present the 4th annual Driftless Region Beef Conference at the Grand River Convention Center in Dubuque, Iowa.

Each year this conference brings together beef producers for an educational program that focuses on the needs of this production region. Last year over 20 sponsors provided displays and were available to discuss the services they provide.

  • Attend breakout sessions and select from a menu of dfferent workshops to find topics for your operation.
  • Visit sponsor exhibits and learn about the products and services they offer.
  • Visit with fellow beef producers from the region.


The conference program and registration information will be announced in November 2015. The planning committee is working hard to bring in experts and topics of interest to Driftless Region cattle producers.
