The Iowa Farm Bureau Federation (IFBF) is offering its members an opportunity to participate in an intensive four-day market study tour to California to investigate the implementation and impacts of the state’s Prop 12 law. All interested members are encouraged to apply this week. 

The trip, set for March 18-21, 2024, will provide an opportunity to gain updates and insight about Prop 12 directly from stakeholders across the pork supply chain, including California farmers, meat distributors, food retailers, researchers and other food and agricultural experts.

Applications can be submitted at and are due this Thursday (Dec. 14). Each participant will be required to pay $850 to fund a share of the tour cost. For more information contact Iowa Farm Bureau Economics and Research Manager Christopher Pudenz at
