The Colorado Cattle Feeders Association was established in 1955 to gather, analyze, and distribute facts relative to the cattle feeding business. The association's goals were to maintain the cattle industry on a sound economic footing through research, promotion, and education. In 1998, it was restructured and became the Colorado Livestock Association. The library’s archival collection includes committee reports, correspondence, minutes, news releases, and newsletters. It also consists of newsletters, reports and other mailings from the American National Cattlemen's Association. The digital collection features items dated 1955 to 1983 and includes the association’s newsletters, Over the Feed Bunk (issues 1955 to 1977) and Feed Back (issues 1978 to 1983). For a complete listing of the library’s holdings, see the finding aid.
