This ACGA mentorship program is comprised of experienced ranchers who are willing to help the younger or more inexperienced rancher with day-to-day issues that come up in cattle ranching or agriculture.
A mentor is a person who identifies the new ranchers' skills and weaknesses and helps fill the gaps in their knowledge. When a rancher agrees to be a mentor, he or she commits to being in contact with the new rancher assigned to them. They receive referrals from the office staff who assign them according to the mentor’s area of expertise. The mentors receive recognition in the Arizona Cattelog once a year as well as at the summer convention. A mentor is asked to be in contact with their mentee at least twice a month.
