Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association background: The Arizona Cattle Growers' Association (ACGA) is a non-profit trade association, formed in 1903, that represents ranchers and beef producers in legislative and regulatory affairs. ACGA funding is generated almost entirely by voluntary dues paid by members, and donations who in turn determine the direction and policy of the organization.

Our association is a strong voice that advocates and represents all segments of ranchers and beef producers. ACGA is dedicated to positively influencing regulations and legislation. Cattle Growers' is fueled by members - the more members involved with the association, the greater return on investment for all.

The Arizona Cattle Growers' Association (ACGA) was founded over 100 years ago when a small group of concerned cattlemen took it upon themselves to help structure the future of the cattle industry in this great state. Their primary concern was that there be orderly, systematic laws protecting livestock and property. On January 4, 1903, these dedicated cattlemen organized the Arizona Cattle Growers' Association (ACGA).

More than 100 years later, protecting Arizona's livestock industry is still ACGA's number one commitment. Today, the ACGA has grown into a vital organization representing more than 2,000 beef cattle producers and industry leaders throughout the state.
