Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust (CCALT) was formed in 1995 to help Colorado’s ranchers and farmers protect their agricultural lands and encourage the intergenerational transfer of ranches and farms. Since 1995, CCALT has partnered with landowners across Colorado to protect productive agricultural land. This work has helped agricultural families to achieve their estate planning goals, pay down debt, save for retirement, pay for long-term health care and college education, diversify and expand operations, and preserve their agricultural heritage. It has also helped to preserve the natural resources that make Colorado such a special place to live and visit.

Colorado Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) is the state’s premier cattlemen’s association that serves as the principal voice and advocate for Colorado beef production. CCA serves members by speaking out on behalf of Colorado’s beef producers and landowners to state and national legislators, agencies, media and consumers. Beef producers join CCA voluntarily and manage it cooperatively, working together to accomplish goals that no single beef producer could reach alone. CCA operates through its network of more than 2,500 members, 46 local and breed associations and its 11 volunteer steering committees that develop policies and direction for the industry.
