Robinson Named New IBE Director

My name is Mallory Robinson, and I am happy to be the new Executive Director for the Iowa Beef Expo. I am excited to be working with everyone that is involved with this prestigious event. 


Growing up on a family farm of 300 Simmental/Angus cows in central Missouri has always had me involved in the agriculture industry. I currently reside in Russell, IA where my husband, Layne, and I work on a 250-head Red Angus farm. During the fall and late spring, you will find me behind a camera taking sale cattle pictures around the Midwest. If you see me out and about, please don’t hesitate to stop me and say, ‘Hi.’


I look forward to the 2021 Iowa Beef Expo and many more to come.

Thank You Sponsors
