Capital Press is reaching out to nonprofit ag groups across the West to help them reach current and potential members.
To start off this effort, the Idaho Cattle Association's newsletter appears on Page 14 of this week's edition. Members of the association will not receive their normal newsletter this month. Instead, they will receive the entire Capital Press with their organization's newsletter printed in it.
Newsletters for the ICA and other groups provide critical information to their members and are of interest industrywide. For example, readers may not be aware that ICA is pushing back against litigation that threatens the cattle industry. The ICA is also working to conserve sage grouse on multiple-use land and spearheading grazing legislation in Congress.
This month's ICA newsletter -- now included in pages of the West's best agricultural news source -- keeps readers informed of how the association's efforts affect you and other ranchers.
We are excited to be partnering with the ICA to bring you information about the association and the industry. It is our goal that organizations be able to reach a broader audience with the issues and concerns that face their members.
We hope our readers enjoy a closer look at these organizations and gain a greater appreciation for the work they do for agriculture. Readers are encouraged to contact the organizations and become members of like-minded groups that help advance their industry.
Capital Press plans to work with other ag groups and organizations to create a greater awareness of ag associations, commodity groups and other organizations.
More newsletters on more segments of agriculture may appear in Capital Press from time to time. The participating groups or organizations are solely responsible for the content of these newsletters, which are separate from the news content of the paper.
If you are interested in learning more about having your ag organization's newsletter appear in Capital Press, please contact me at email@example.com or call 503-385-4910.
