Membership in IBCA
Membership begins with ME. Programs, policies, and people. I am IBCA.
Membership doesn't cost, it pays.
~ Gary Fiscus, Beef Producer, Spencer, Indiana
As Indiana's principal organization representing Hoosier beef producers since 1964, we have produced solid results for cattlemen and women in this state by advancing their values and priorities with legislators and regulators. We also recognize the importance of educating cattle producers on ways to increase profit opportunities as well as serving to protect their future by telling the true story of our industry to the uninformed. Anyone with an interest or a "steak" in the beef industry should be an IBCA member.
A portion of membership dues are used to educate and inform all Indiana residents, whether they are cattle producers, consumers or our political leaders. Another portion is used to support youth through scholarships provided by IBCA. IBCA dues also highlight Indiana producers at the Indiana State Fair, Hoosier Beef Congress, Area Beef Meetings and our annual Convention and Business Meeting. The Indiana Beef Cattle Association partners with National Purchasing Partners (NPP) to provide discounts on products and services. NPP negotiates the rates and makes them available to IBCA members. The membership is free and members can get started by clicking here.
Individual Memberships are $50.00 a year, Family Memberships are $60.00 a year and Associate Memberships are only $100.00 a year.
