SDCA works with several organizations within the beef industry and agriculture across the state of South Dakota.
Local AffiliatesThese groups are a great way for members to become involved with the SDCA on a truly grassroots level. Local affiliates allow members to work closely to the industry through their local communities. Each local affiliate has a board of directors and hosts meetings and activities throughout the year.
SDALT is a joint effort of the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association, South Dakota Grasslands Coalition, South Dakota Conservation Districts, and South Dakota Farm Bureau. We are farmers and ranchers who understand the conservation needs of South Dakota’s agricultural community
As a grassroots organization, all SDCA policy is member directed. SDCA leadership and members work together to ensure that beef producers have a sound environment to raise their livestock and exceptional opportunities for success.
The members are represented locally by the affiliate they operate in. Each local affiliate has a board of directors and hosts meetings and activities throughout the year. A representative from each affiliate is chosen to serve on the on the state board of directors and are encouraged to have an affiliate representative at each committee meeting during convention.
