Thousands of Cows Represented

On behalf of I-29 Moo University, a 5-state collaboration of Extension professionals (IA, MN, SD, NE, ND), we are inviting you to help with sponsorship of our entire year’s activities. We depend on sponsorships from companies such as yours 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.  I-29 Moo University works extensively to reach the 869,500 cows (USDA, 2018) in 5-state region. 

 In the last year, we have offered…

  • Three programs at 8 locations in the five-state area.
  • A new program included dairy field days in South Dakota and Iowa, which drew 57 producers and industry professionals and represented nearly 5,000 cows. 
  • Five webinars featuring timely dairy topics with sponsor recognition.  100 views on average occur during each webinar and hundreds of views of each recorded webinar occurs, on average. 
  • Face-to-face programming for the year drew more than 300 people and represented more than 62,000 cows
  • More than 600 people view our monthly e-newsletter from 150 locations worldwide, including several foreign countries each month
