Iowa Premium is now part of the National Beef Family

The same high-quality family-farm raised corn-fed Black Angus beef products supported by the expertise and resources of National Beef.


Located in Tama, Iowa, Iowa Premium procures and processes only corn-fed Black Angus cattle from farm families in Iowa and our neighboring upper Midwest states. Specializing in USDA Choice and USDA Prime grade beef, we offer a full line of boxed beef products and by-products for domestic and international customers.

Originally built in 1971, our 260,000 square foot facility has been renovated to meet the highest standards in food safety, quality assurance and sustainability. Our skilled team of butchers expertly hand-trim every piece of beef. We hand-pack and inspect all of our boxes, providing extra attention to the details of delivering a superior product.

Our boots-on-the-ground cattle procurement team visits family farms to hand-select high quality Black Angus cattle. To date they have procured cattle from more than 1,400 farm families. It is evident the time-honored husbandry practices and care provided by the family farm-feeder results in higher quality beef.

A sustainable beef processing facility is a conviction at Iowa Premium. We continually seek ways to conserve and protect our natural resources. By raising cattle respectfully, running facilities responsibly and maintaining land sustainably, we believe we're setting the standard - for the betterment of our employees, customers, farm partners and local and global communities.
