Tehama County CattleWomen
Monday, November 13, 2017
The beef industry is an important part of the Tehama County economy. The Tehama County CattleWomen believe in the importance of the industry for our world as a whole. The organization started in 1953 and is associated with the Tehama County Cattlemen’s Association. The CattleWomen group includes women who are interested in promoting the beef cattle industry and who are involved with the day to day work of raising beef cattle. They strive to support the industry with labor and finances, to encourage producers and to instill the same love for the industry in future generations. They also work to teach youth about the process behind the beef they consume and to educate consumers about the benefits of beef as part of a healthy, well-balanced diet.
The group awards two college scholarships each year, one for children of agricultural families with a non-agricultural major and the other is for a student going into the agricultural industry. They also coordinate a beef ambassador program for young women. They coordinate booths at community events across the state for promoting the beef industry. A few of the yearly events include an annual trail ride, dinner and scholarship fundraiser, the famous Beef N’ Brew event, and a fashion show and luncheon.
