We are Brazos Valley CattleWomen.

The Brazos Valley CattleWomen is a community-based organization dedicated to protecting the interests of farmers and ranchers, preserving agriculture and ranching traditions, and promoting beef cattle production. The only membership requirement is an interest in promoting the beef industry in our community. Our community includes Brazos County and any contiguous county that does not have its own local chapter. Cattle ownership is NOT a requirement for membership.

As part of our mission, we want to educate women in the beef and cattle industry. Our goal is to act as ambassadors for the Beef Industry by providing accurate facts and reliable information to consumers. The Brazos Valley CattleWomen is an educational and economic resource for all women. Through our leadership efforts and strategic partnerships, we strive to protect the future of the beef industry through fact based education and solutions to problems facing beef producers.
