Alabama Junior Cattlemen's Association

Welcome to the home of The Alabama Junior Cattlemen’s Association. The AJCA was formed in 1958 by the Alabama Cattlemen's Association Board of Directors. The junior organization was to be organized on a county-by-county basis similar to the parent organization. In March 1959 the AJCA elected their first President, Johnny Kilgore.  The Alabama Junior Cattlemen’s Association has changed over the years, but it has remained a group of young people who enjoy working with cattle and promoting Alabama’s beef industry. Some highlights of the AJCA today include the election of the Junior Board of Directors each March at the Alabama Junior Beef Expo and the AJCA Round-Up which is held each year in July. AJCA membership is open to all Alabama youth 21 years of age and younger as of January 1 of the membership year.
