Iowa Cattlemen's Association

The show WILL go on! Plans are underway for the 38th Annual Iowa Governor's Charity Steer Show (GCSS) to be held on August 15, 2020.

The event, which raises money for the Ronald McDonald House of Des Moines, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa & Western Illinois and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Siouxland, would typically be held at the Iowa State Fair. However, with the postponement of the 2020 fair, show organizers are actively making adjustments to plans.

“The Governor’s Charity Steer Show is a long-standing tradition and benefits a very good cause,” says Tanner Lawton, Iowa Cattlemen’s Association staff member and co-chair of this year’s GCSS. “We’ve known for the past few weeks that the show and auction probably wouldn’t be the same as it has been in years past, but our priority is making sure that we have a successful fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Iowa.”

This historic philanthropic event has raised over $3.8 million to help provide a home away from home for families of children who are being treated in nearby hospitals. Ronald McDonald Houses are located in Des Moines, Iowa City, and Sioux City. The location for this year's show is yet to be determined, but we should have more information in the coming weeks.

Twenty-five steers from across the state will compete for the championship designation, showmanship honors, and the People’s Choice award. Each of the steers has been raised by an Iowa youth involved in the cattle industry, and celebrities will accompany the young steer owners.

Immediately following the competition, the steers will be sold at auction with proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Iowa. Last year’s auction raised more than $284,000.

Each week we do a hot spot product to let everyone know some of the different things we carry! 06/15/2020

Today’s Hot Spot product is:
Product number #882
*Intake Stimulator*
This is used to stimulate the appetite in stressed cattle/incoming cattle! Full of chelated vitamins, yeast culture and B-vitamins! 🤩🐮


Iowa 4-H Livestock

Regarding the 2020 Iowa State Fair postponement, there are plans to still have 4-H and FFA livestock shows. Details are still being worked out for scheduling. We will let everyone know the plan sometime next week.

Predator X

Nothing like the protection of a mama! 🙂

Cattle van be VERY unpredictable!
I've seen one cross a pasture on a dead run after a coyote that was responding to my call.
And then I've watched another lay next to it's week old calf in the middle of a field as a coyote bit at the calf.
This jackal was lucky enough to find an aggressive heard of cows! 👀
Cool video!

A new lawsuit accuses the "Big Four" beef packers of conspiring to fix cattle prices | The Counter

thecounter.org The plaintiffs say companies like JBS and Tyson Foods illegally plotted to force desperate ranchers into selling their animals more cheaply.


These big guys were so eager to enjoy their 12% Equine lick tub! 😜
Retired work horses. So we opted to this all natural product.
•Consumption is anywhere from 0.75 - 2.0lbs per head per day.
•Contains all vitamins, trace minerals, chelated trace minerals (more available to the animal) and some added electrolytes for added water consumption.
• Meant for use for horses on dry lot or pasture.
•These tubs are manufactured in an unique patented cooking process, creating a hard block: animals will have to lick it to get it.
•Overconsumption is limited since they cannot bite them.
•Convenient & easy to feed 👍🏼

Big Gain offers a full line of Horse feeds, contact us today for any interest or further information!! 🐴

Unfortunately, we are seeing the domino effects of COVID-19 in our beef supply chains. Illness has shuttered packing plants while decreasing demand in food-service combined with an over-supply of protein has also slowed processing and even caused some sale barns to cancel fed cattle sales.

We have a link on our website to the most recent sale cancellations and plant closures, but if you have information to submit, please message us or call 515-296-2266.



Today’s lesson: “Choose a job you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.” ☺️


“Finally Agriculture is recognized for how important our contribution is to our country's survival in this pandemic. Hoping people will be grateful for the most abundant and safe food supply produced by the most efficient industry in the world-AMERICAN AGRICULTURE."
Good article to read about our service that helps during this time. Thank you to all workers & everyone who is involved in the whole food chain industry, we all have to work together to feed the world! ✅

Here’s a sneak peek on our Bottle Calf Program~These little guys come in at about a week old and go on a strict diet of Milk Replacer and Surstart 18%! This diet will help them grow & gain till they are about 180lbs. After that they will be moved to a grower feed lot. Raising baby bottle calves can be a challenge. Luckily we try to work closely with our customers to help with any difficulties that may come along the way! 🐮🤩


Merry Christmas everyone! We hope your day is filled with love, laughter & good food! 🎄❤️
