Founded in tradition and legacy, the Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association just held its 119th Annual Summer Convention.

Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association Summer Convention Recap

Having taken place July 20-23, 2022, the summer convention was the place to be for many Arizona ranching families. The three full days of the convention were filled with speakers, workshops, a tradeshow, photo ops and so much more. Some of the highlights include speakers like Kevin Good with Cattlefax, Corbitt Wall from Feeder Flash, Dr. Ashworth with Zinpro, and CKP Insurance’s very own, Chuck Hemphill who opened for the Benefit Dinner and Auction. There was also a dance and several phenomenal workshops that attendees could benefit from.

Of course, none of this would be possible without the help of the ACGA’s dedicated volunteers and sponsors. Many people don’t realize the amount of time and money it takes to put on an annual event like this. In addition to that, the funds raised at this event go back to help cattle ranchers all across Arizona. If you are involved in ranching in Arizona and would like to get involved with the ACGA, then make sure to check out their website and Facebook page for regular updates!

About the Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association

Planting its roots in 1903, the Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association (ACGA) was created by a group of concerned cattlemen that wanted to help promote structure and growth in the Arizona cattle industry. Their main goal back then was to create orderly, systematic laws that would protect livestock and property. Little did they know that the work they put in would provide a foundation for what the organization is achieving today. The main goal today for the ACGA is to be a grassroots non-profit association that represents, protects, promotes, and sustains an atmosphere conducive to profitable ranching for Arizona cow/calf producers.
