The Indiana Beef Cattle Association and Purdue Extension will host 10 meetings around the state in December and January to give cattle producers the latest industry information.

The annual meetings will feature updates on the manure application rule, farm legislation and the use of farm plates when traveling out of state.

"This is an opportunity for farmers to get updates on new rules and regulations, and recommendations to improve compliance and profitability," said Ron Lemenager, Purdue Extension beef specialist.

The IBCA will discuss how dues and beef checkoff dollars are used to help producers remain profitable and sustainable. The Indiana Board of Animal Health also will provide an update for producers.

Lemenager said the meetings could be more geographically valuable this year because representatives from the areas were also able to select an informational topic from a list of options that included mega-trends facing the industry, land use and forage production, new reproductive efficiency research results, and value-added marketing.
