Hosted by the Iowa Whitetail Deer Association, the national conference will be held on July 29-31, 2010 in Des Moines, Iowa.
“With our society becoming increasingly urbanized every day, it is more important that ever before to preserve our outdoor lifestyle and agricultural pursuits, and I’m very proud to support the men and women who work to improve the quality of our deer herds across North America,” says Keith Warren, a longtime proponent of the deer industry.
“Deer farmers are at the forefront of whitetail research and working hand-in-hand with biologists and wildlife authorities on ways to improve deer health and management. We feature their efforts every week on our show, Deer & Wildlife Stories, and I’m excited to participate in the Cervid Congress this year.”
