Take one organization focused on offering top notch research information to Iowa's beef industry, add another organization committed to growing Iowa's beef business through advocacy, leadership and education, and what do you have? A collaborative effort for helping Iowa beef producers that's second to none. Iowa Beef Center director Dan Loy says the center's strength is access to a leading research university with faculty and staff who share a commitment to provide relevant unbiased information to the state's beef industry. "Iowa State University Extension and Outreach has a long history of providing information to ag-minded professionals to make operational decisions that can lead to longer term sustainability," he says. "Our regional program specialists and county extension staffs' expertise complements our ability to be at the gate of the producer's needs."
