The Arkansas Cattlemen's Association is proud to host several events and programs throughout the year to better serve and educate its members.
The Arkansas Cattlemen's Association Convention will be July 29-30 in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
The Arkansas Cattlemen's Leadership Course (ACLC) instills principles of leadership and advocacy within the beef industry and promotes the involvement of young producers within the state. Participants attend five sessions spread throughout the year. During each session, participants get the opportunity to learn different skills to better advocate for the cattle industry in Arkansas and around the country. Participants who complete the course are invited to take part in the graduation ceremony at the 4th Quarter meeting.
The Arkansas Cattlemen's Association hosts nine Area Spring Conferences during the month of March at a central location in each of its nine areas throughout the state. These meetings typically consist of a steak dinner, a word from our sponsors, an educational message from an industry leader, one-on-one networking with major companies and a pie auction held by the Arkansas CattleWomen's Association.
The purpose of the Cattlemen's Choice Replacement Heifer Pen Show is to highlight the very best of the Arkansas replacement cattle herd. This show is meant to encourage the livestock youth of Arkansas to be actively engaged in production practices of beef cattle husbandry and genetic evaluation and selection of quality replacement heifers.
