The Virginia Cattlemen's Association (VCA) was organized in 1944 and chartered in 1953 to promote the profit potential of Virginia's cattle industry. The early objectives of VCA were to promote more effective marketing from the farm to the consumer and to present cattlemen's views to the legislature on the state and local levels. These primary objectives provide the basis for most of VCA's activities today. In addition to marketing, VCA works for Virginia's cattlemen in many areas, including: media relations, producer information, sponsorship of educational seminars for cattlemen, administrative support for Virginia's Beef Checkoff Program, and coordination of activities with cattle related organizations in Virginia.
