Download Full Text
In 2017, Iowa State University was commissioned by the Iowa Beef Industry Council to conduct an economic contribution study of the Iowa beef industry. The study was funded by the Iowa State Beef Checkoff in cooperation with Iowa State University, the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, Iowa Corn, Iowa Farm Bureau, and the Iowa Area Development Group. A study of this magnitude is important to the state’s beef industry to further understand the economic importance and value added opportunities that exist.
