The Colorado Cattle Feeders Association was established in 1955 to gather, analyze, and distribute facts relative to the cattle feeding business. The Colorado Cattle Feeders Association's goals were to maintain the cattle industry on a sound economic footing through research, promotion, and education. In 1998, the Association was restructured and became the Colorado Livestock Association (CLA). The collection files include committee reports, correspondence, minutes, news releases, and newsletters.
