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 two councils. The state is also divided into nine regions with MSCA leadership consisting of a regional director together with the officers.

Council Leadership

The Cow-Calf and Cattle Feeders Councils are made up of members with an interest in those segments of beef production. Council leaders serve on the MSCA Board of Directors and the councils also host meetings and events pertaining to their area of specialty.
