ICA communications

The Iowa Cattlemen's Association communications efforts help provide the most up-to-date information on the beef industry to ICA members. The ICA also provides factual and timely information on issues and about the positive impact of the beef industry in Iowa. News about the ICA and the beef industry is provided in several ways.
