Who We Are

The Tennessee Cattlemen's Association was founded in 1985 and has been a leader and a voice for cattle producers in the state ever since. TCA staff and leadership work with local, state, and federal officials on issues that matter to your farm. 

TCA is a supporter of youth programs such as livestock exhibiting and 4-H groups, and also supports research conducted by university specialists. 

 

Nearly 7,100 cattle producers in Tennessee trust TCA to be their voice on the Hill and you can too! 

 

Your membership includes a free subscription to the monthly magazine, Tennessee Cattle Business, as well as discounts from industry partners.
