The mission of the Michigan Cattlemen’s Association is to represent all aspects of Michigan’s cattle industry and to foster, promote and protect an environment conducive to profitable beef production through services, activities and policy formation.
The Michigan Cattlemen’s Association (MCA) is a nonprofit organization of beef producers. MCA strives to promote understanding and cooperation in the Michigan cattle industry for the common interests of producers, marketing agencies and consumers. The association coordinates and arranges meetings, tours, and other activities in an effort to promote goodwill and communication in and for the cattle industry. In addition, MCA works to represent the Michigan cattle industry in legislative matters and policy formation at the local, state and national levels. MCA collaborates with cattle and other agricultural organizations from within Michigan, from other states and is an affiliate of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.
