The Iowa Ayrshire Club has hosted six National Ayrshire Conventions since 1957, each with some of the very best Ayrshire Trans Ova Geneticsfemales, bulls, frozen semen and embryos available, each in their day.

The 2017 National Convention will be at Prairie Meadows Casino and Event Center near the intersection of Interstate Highways 80 and 35, the crossroads of North America. The sale will be at the nearby Iowa State Fairgrounds with David Koss serving as Sale Chairman, assisted by Karen Koss as Iowa Ayrshire Secretary and Treasurer.
