MSCA works with several organizations within the beef and agriculture industry.
These groups are a great way for members to become involved with the MSCA on a truly grassroots level. Local affiliates allow members to work closely to the industry through their local communities. Each local affiliate has a board of directors and hosts meetings and activities throughout the year.
