As Indiana's principal organization representing Hoosier beef producers since 1975, we have produced solid results for cattlemen and women in this state by advancing their values and priorities with legislators and regulators.
We 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.

In cooperation with the Indiana State Board of Animal Health, the IBCA is asking its members to complete this survey related to meat grading. Meat grading, which is regulated by the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service (USDA AMS), is not currently offered under state inspection. While inspection for wholesomeness is mandatory, grading is voluntary. To provide grading services, BOAH staff members must complete additional, extensive training. This survey is intended to help BOAH Meat & Poultry Division leadership assess the demand for the service in the state of Indiana, and determine if a grading program could be sustained.
