Creating the opportunity for the world to enjoy high quality Canadian beef.

The Alberta Cattle Feeders’ Association is the voice of cattle feeders in the province of Alberta. We address feedlot, market, trade, and competitive issues and provide a forum for policy development. Through an open and transparent process, the ACFA welcomes the bridging of partnerships to move the industry forward.

Cattle feeders know change is a constant in their industry. Change is part of the vitality of the business and ACFA is dedicated to the growth of the cattle feeding sector and the future of the beef cattle industry.

Alberta cattle feeders excel in their profession through the following industry management practices:

  • Feeding cattle with a focus on animal health, nutrition, and well being
  • Being flexible and feeding for specific markets
  • Procuring a variety of weights and classes of cattle and thereby supporting the entire cow calf and yearling industries
  • Buying feed grain and co-product from a variety of sources, enabling these industries to enjoy alternate markets for product
