Local Cattlemen's chapter recognized as state's largest

The Franklin County Cattlemen's Association chapter was named the largest in the state during the 2017 membership year, according to the Alabama Cattlemen's Association.

Each county across Alabama is hope to a Cattlemen's chapter. Franklin County finished the year with 582 members, followed by Limestone (502 members) and Lauderdale (350 members) counties.

To honor this achievement, the ACA awarded an outdoor tent and a “Beef, It's What's For Dinner” banner for use at county events.

“We appreciate the hard work of Franklin County's grassroots leaders and their efforts to recruit members on behalf of the association,” ACA executive vice president Erin Beasley said. “It is our pleasure to reward a chapter as engaged and active as Franklin County. They are an inspiration to many counties in the state for their dedication to recruiting members.”

The Franklin County Cattlemen's Association is led by president Steven Smith, Phil Campbell; vice president Caleb Beason, Russellville; and secretary/treasurer Jack Hargett, Spruce Pine. The leadership team is also backed by an actively involved board of directors.
