Brand Wall

The Brand Wall is a source of pride for Iowa producers and a way to recognize your family history in a business that remains family-oriented. The ICA Headquarters building is used for a variety of cattle industry meetings, as well as other agricultural and business groups who all view the facility including the prominently displayed Brand Wall area. The wall is positioned in a high traffic area and receives many positive comments. You name and address will be included on a brass plated, oak ledger on the wall going up the steps next to the Brand Wall.

Past contributors to the Brand Wall have done so to honor previous generations and establish a heritage in Iowa's cattle industry for future generations. Iowa's family cattle producers remain proud of their roots and their livelihood - the Brand Wall is a great way to share that ride with fellow producers.

We are always looking for producers who have an interest in placing their farm brand on our Brand Wall. The $1,000 contribution to place you brand on the Wall, can be paid in annual installments either all the first year, over two years, or over three years. We will make the branding iron for you and during the ICA Summer Conference it will be yours to keep.

If you would like more information on the Brand Wall program or want to place your brand on the Brand Wall for permanent display, please contact Merle Witt, Membership Coordinator, 515-231-7310.
