The voluntary membership based Minnesota State Cattlemen's Association is an organization that represents cattle farmers, ranchers and all those individuals and business that are part of the cattle industry in Minnesota. Remember, dairy farmers are part of Minnesota's cattle industry too. In addition to producing milk the dairymen also produce a lot of beef too.
