I-29 Annual Call for Sponsorship

I-29 Moo University is a 5-state collaboration of extension professionals from Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, North Dakota. In the last 3 years, we have offered…

  • Nine programs at 33 locations in the five-state area.
  • I-29 Moo University works extensively to reach the 867,500 cows (USDA, 2017) in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Nebraska with direct producer programming.
  • Programs and tours have drawn 1,128 producers and industry professionals. This past year our programs represented over 100,000 cows in the region, alone! 
  • More than 600 people view our monthly e-newsletter from 150 locations worldwide, including one foreign country.

We depend on sponsorships from companies to keep the cost affordable for participants. If you have been a sponsor in the past, we want to thank you for your past support and ask that you continue your sponsorship this year. If you have never been a sponsor, please consider this opportunity to promote your company by supporting these programs for dairy producers and dairy beef feeders. We offer excellent programming throughout the year to meet the ever-changing needs of dairy producers and industry professionals throughout the five-state region addressing timely topics, setting up tours, and connecting progressive ideas.

You spoke, we listened…

I-29 Moo University received input from our past sponsors about streamlining our sponsorship requests for the various annual events. Previously we contacted companies to sponsor an individual event, which included the Winter Roadshow, Fall Tour, and Dairy Beef Short Course. However, we have restructured our sponsorship levels and are now seeking an annual contribution to conduct our educational opportunities. Annual sponsorship requests will be sent in August of each year.
