The grassroots of the ICA is made up of county organizations. There are 97 active county organizations involved in a wide variety of activities throughout the year, including grilling beef products at local events, sponsoring market outlook meetings or working at the county fair.

Each of the 97 counties has a board which includes a president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer. In some cases, a county may have a membership coordinator as well. You can contact any of these members for current activities in your county or to find out how to become more involved in your county organization.

Remember, if you send a summary of your county activities, it will be published in the Iowa Cattleman magazine on the County Roundup pages. You can send county events forms to Katie Olthoff, Communications Director, 2055 Ironwood Court, Ames, Iowa 50014, or e-mail

If you would like more information about your county activities, please call the ICA office, 515-296-2266, and we'd be happy to send you to the right person.
