Corporate Partner and Sponsor
Inducted May 14, 2009
Founded in 1944, the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association (ACA) serves as the combined body of more than 12,000 members and as Alabama’s qualified state beef council. The ACA serves as the voice of the state’s cattle producers and beef industry.
The ACA has a long-standing tradition of supporting the Alabama 4-H program at the local, regional, state, and national levels financially as well as programmatically. The association financially contributes thousands of dollars annually to support the Southeastern Livestock Exposition and Rodeo, which house the State Livestock Expo for 4-H youth. In addition to facilities and premiums, the association provides volunteers and subject matter expertise to the event.
A continued emphasis on educating 4-H youth in the area of animal science and production agriculture can be demonstrated by the association’s continued support of the 4-H Achievement program in Beef Production and Meat Science.
