Beef Cattle Improvement Association

Mississippi Beef Cattle Improvement Association (MBCIA)

Mississippi Beef Cattle Improvement Association

The Mississippi Beef Cattle Improvement Association (MBCIA) focuses on promoting performance records and encouraging good management practices while cooperating with other like-minded organizations to emphasize the economic importance of beef cattle production in Mississippi. MBCIA is a member of the national Beef Improvement Federation (BIF). Three Mississippians have served as BIF Board members in the last decade. MBCIA hosted the Beef Improvement Federation annual meeting for the first time in its near 40-year history in Philadelphia, MS in April 2006 and is scheduled to host it again in 2015 in Biloxi.

The MBCIA encourages the production and identification of genetically superior animals by purebred breeders and promotes the purchase and use of these animals by commercial producers through various sale offerings.

 

The annual MBCIA membership meeting is held in March on the evening before the spring bull and heifer sale at Raymond, MS.
