Call Out to Local Affiliates
The grassroots of the IBCA is made up of county organizations. There are many active county and area organizations involved in a wide variety of activities throughout the year, including grilling beef products at local events, holding field days, sponsoring scholarships or working at the county fair. We are interested in hearing about your organization's future or past events.

Remember, if you send a summary of your county activities, it will be highlighted in this weekly newsletter and or published in the Indiana Beef magazine. You can send county event forms by mail to Jennifer Biesecker, Indiana Beef Cattle Association, 5738 W 74th St. Indianapolis, IN 46278 or by email.
