KCA Membership Incentives

Membership in the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association is open to any individual or organization that has an interest in the cattle industry of Kentucky. KCA’s funding is generated partly by voluntary dues paid by the over 9,700 members belonging to KCA. There are 99 Cattlemen’s Association Chapters that represent beef producers across the state and serve as a link between local associations and KCA.

The Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association is partnering with McBurney Livestock Equipment to award one lucky KCA member with an EASY WAY Cattle Saver. The winner will be announced in August.

By joining or renewing your membership before July 31, 2015 you are automatically entered in to win an EASY WAY Cattle Saver sponsored by McBurney Livestock Equipment. This EASY WAY face fly fighter, mineral feeder and cattle scratcher, aids in the control of face and horn flies, mosquitoes, lice and other pests.

In addition, every KCA member who also joins the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association will be entered in a drawing for a $100 Cabela’s gift card.
