President's Council

Established in 1987 as a special group of select, allied-industry companies dedicated to the beef industry, the Iowa Cattlemen's Association President's Council makes an investment in the future of Iowa's beef industry.

Each member gives $5,000 annually for the development of special long-term programs, educational activities, leadership training and broad-based informational programs which normally fall outside the Iowa Cattlemen's Association's membership and checkoff supported budget.

The President's Council establishes a communications link between Iowa's cattle producers and our participating companies. Through tours, events and seminars, ICA members have the opportunity to touch base with this elite group of businesses, which are all interested in the future of cattle producers.

If you are interested in becoming an ICA President's Council, please contact Merle Witt, Membership Coordinator, 515-231-7310. Or you can call the ICA office at 515-296-2266.
