The Iowa Cattlemen’s Association will host a series of ten cattle marketing meetings starting this week. Cora Fox, the association’s director of government relations, says they’ll be sharing information on possible solutions before the U-S Senate to the long-running cattle marketing problem.
Fox says one of the cattle market reform proposals involves legislation co-sponsored by Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley.
Fox says another possible solution comes from an National Cattlemen’s Beef Association working group.
The meetings begin Tuesday and run through November 19th. One of the meetings will be held at the Humeston Livestock Exchange on Thursday morning at 10am. Another meeting will be held Thursday, November 19th at 7pm at the Creston Livestock Auction. More information can be found at iacattlemen.org.
