Government Advocacy

Advancing the Legacy, since 1867, Colorado Cattlemen’s Association is committed to a bright and prosperous future for beef production. Threats and opportunities are all around us, that’s why the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association works tirelessly to protect and promote our way of life.

CCA works at the state, local and national level on public policy and advocacy that directly affects the beef production industry. A large slate of volunteer leaders, professional staff and network of affiliate organizations compliment each other delivering results that no single beef producer could. CCA is affiliated with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and maintains collaborative relationships with other organizations at the national, state and local levels.
