MSCA Leadership

The Minnesota State Cattlemen's Association is known for its strong representation of the state's beef producers. This is largely due to the incredible leaders MSCA has had and  their efforts to promote, preserve, and advance the state's industry.  All MSCA Leadership is nominated and selected by MSCA's members. MSCA is made up of 20 local affiliates and 2 councils. The state is also divided into 9 regions, with a Regional Director, together with the officers, make up MSCA leadership.
