Conference Sponsorship

The conference planning committee extends an open invitation to interested businesses and organizations to be a sponsor of the conference and help make it a success. Each sponsorship level provides increasing benefits to the organization and opportunities to interact with leading beef producers in the region.


The conference attendance averages around 175. Past surveys show 62% of the attendees self-identified as cow/calf owners or cow and feedlot owners. 58% farm or manage over 160 acres of pasture and forage. 50% own or manage over 60 cows, and 30% finish more than 300 head. Nearly half of the participants were less than 45 years old, and half are repeat attendees. This is an audience you will want to get to know!

Thank you for considering sponsorship of this important event. For further sponsorship information please email or call (515) 294-6429 and you will be put in contact with a member of the planning committee from your area who can provide more details and answer questions.


Registration for sponsors for the 2019 program will open summer 2018.
