The Mid-Ga Cattlemen’s Association was founded over 50 years ago and is the largest chapter in number of members in the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association. MGCA is made up of cattlemen, cattlewomen, and junior members in a six county area: Lamar, Monroe, Pike, Spalding, Upson & Talbot. MGCA’s purpose is to form a voluntary non-political, non-sectarian, multi-county area association to promote, develop and encourage the production of cattle in the multi-county area in middle Georgia and to advance the interests and welfare of Georgia cattlemen in the growing, grazing, feeding, and marketing of cattle without pecuniary profit to the individual member or to the Association.
Our members meet bi-monthly on the second Tuesday of the month starting in January. At the meetings, members enjoy a beef dinner, conduct chapter business, and are presented programs on various topics related to the beef industry.
MGCA’s has won numerous awards over the years for outstanding achievement in the Georgia Cattlemen’s Association including GCA’s Chapter of the Year in 2013. MGCA is very involved in supporting youth organizations such as 4-H and FFA, local organizations such as the local food banks, and the Young Cattlemen’s Council. Our Cattlewomen help educate our youth about the beef industry at several Ag Field Day events and Ag in the Classroom programs throught out the year.
