Cattlemen Connect Education Series 

Join us for the debut of regional Cattlemen Connect meetings! 

From Summer Conference to Cattlemen Connect. We understand that summer is a busy time of year for cattlemen and women to leave the farm for two days. We have heard your concerns and we are ready to bring resources closer to your farm with a one-day regional meeting model.  Each year we will host a meeting in Northern, Central, and Southern Illinois. Meetings will cost $25.00 for IBA members, and $50.00 for non-IBA members.
