Strengthen and Unite animal agriculture in Colorado for future generations.

A Voice for the Livestock Industry

“Representing Colorado’s livestock producers with a unified voice by advancing the interests of

members, livestock and the public.”

Colorado Livestock Association (CLA) was formed in 1998 through a restructuring of the then 43 year old Colorado Cattle Feeders Association (CCFA).
