The Indiana State Department of Agriculture, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, launched Indiana’s first Market Reporting Program.
Gordon Lowry was appointed director of the program. He was recently hired by ISDA and is certified through USDA as a market reporter. Lowry graduated from Purdue University with a bachelor’s degree in Animal Sciences and has more than 40 years of experience in the livestock industry. Previously, he served as the head of procurement at Dewig Meats for Heartland Premium Aged Beef in Haubstadt, and worked as a cattle buyer for several companies including: JBS Packerland, United Producers and the Michigan Livestock Exchange. The Market Reporting Program will provide real-time market prices of livestock and commodities from various live auction markets across the state. This information, published in a weekly report and available online, is intended to keep producers and agricultural businesses better informed about the value of their livestock.
