Membership in IBCA

 "IBCA can do things that a single individual cannot. Whether it be promoting beef or representing producers on legislative issues, IBCA works to offer a voice for individual consumers while safeguarding the beef supply."
~ Bruce Lamb, Beef Producer, Milford, Indiana

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 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. 

Producer Household Memberships are $75 per year and Associate Business Memberships are only $150.00 a year.

Being a member also entitles you to receive our weekly newsletter Beef at a Glance. Beef at a Glance is an electronic newsletter published by the Indiana Beef Cattle Association every Thursday. This newsletter covers news and events important to the Indiana Beef Cattle Industry and is available to all IBCA members who have a valid e-mail address. To sign up for Beef at a Glance, send us an e-mail or call the IBCA office at 317-293-2333.

Our members, both Producer and Associate,  receive a copy of our magazine. Indiana Beef Magazine is published in January/February, March/April/May/June, July/August, September/October, and November/December. Each issue of Indiana Beef Magazine is mailed to approximately 4,700 cow/calf producers, purebred breeders, cattle feeders, educators, junior cattlemen, and related beef industry representatives in Indiana. Find out about advertising in Indiana Beef Magazine.
