May is Beef Month in the state of Iowa. Heather Bandstra is with the Marion County Cattleman’s Association. She says the beef industry has a substantial impact on the area economy. The Iowa Cattleman’s Association estimates that more than 19,000 animals are marketed in Marion County, according to Bandstra. She describes the cattle market as steady without major swings in recent years.
