The Texas Cattle Feeders Association represents the cattle feeding industry in the three-state region of Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. This area, known as Cattle Feeding Country, is the largest cattle feeding region in the U.S. A multi-billion-dollar industry, TCFA members annually market more than 6 million fed cattle – approximately 28 percent of the fed cattle produced in the United States.


To serve and advance the economic, political and social interests of the cattle feeding industry of Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.


While the cattle industry in the United States goes back to the discovery of the New World, the cattle feeding industry in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico is relatively young. It wasn’t until the 1960s that cattle feedyards began to boom in the region. It was the foresight of those first few cattle feeders that led to the creation of TCFA in 1967. Since those early days, cattle feeding in the area has grown into a multi-billion dollar industry.
