MISSION STATEMENT

At Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association we protect, promote, and sustain Arizona cattle ranching for present and future generations through grassroots advocacy, policy formation, and education.

VISION

To establish and build political action, producer education, and consumer promotion that will protect the future of Arizona ranching. 

ACGA At Work For You

The Arizona Cattle Growers' Association (ACGA) was founded 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 ACGA. Today, ACGA is a grassroots non-profit association that represents, protects, promotes, and sustains an atmosphere conducive to profitable ranching.

The ACGA will promote the common interest and perform the common responsibilities of its members by:

  • Performing federal and state legislative activities consisting of proposing and reviewing legislation and lobbying for or against legislation as in the best interest of ACGA.

  • Performing public relations activities that will promote the image and heritage of the ranching and cattle industry, build positive relationships with key individuals, media, agencies, consumers, schools and others important to ranching and the cattle industry.

  • Initiate, enter into, defend or prepare a response to litigation in the collective good of the common interest and importance.

  • Consistently provide timely and accurate information to the membership that is of common interest and importance.

  • Provide opportunities for members to become educated on issues of importance.

  • Maintain a strong and informed membership base. Build alliances with common interest groups.
