Membership is "open to all persons passionate about the livestock industry".
Weld County Livestock Association was founded in 1943 and has a long and noble history. The Mission of the WCLA is to strengthen the livestock industry in Weld County through youth education & scholarships and producer events. It also functions as the voice of the livestock producers in Weld County to guide policy at the local, state, and national level to protect livestock production. The association represents you at local, county, and state agencies when livestock production policy decisions arise. WCLA is a proud affiliate of Colorado Cattlemen's Association and Colorado Livestock Association. As an affiliate, we are kept current of issues facing the livestock industry. WCLA also serves to disseminate information for the betterment of the industry. Weld County Livestock Association is a not for profit corporation.
Membership is not dependent upon owning a cow or working in the beef industry. Rather, it is dependent upon your interest in the agriculture industry and your desire to promote beef and help educate the consumer, children and the general public.
Being a member of the Cattle Women also provides the opportunity to network and socialize with a group of women that share a common passion. Six meetings are held each year, and the WCCW take part in civic events in Weld County. The WCCW are an affiliate of Colorado Cattlemen's Association.
