What We Do
The National Cattle Feeders’ Association (NCFA) was established in 2007 to represent Canadian cattle feeders on national issues and to work in collaboration with other cattle organizations across the country.
The NCFA operates in alignment with government and industry to develop workable solutions for the feedlot sector. Our demonstrated successes prove many voices with a similar message have greater impact for cattle feeders. Our initiatives clearly demonstrate our unique role and contribution to the governance and organizational infrastructure of Canada’s beef industry.
