What is SACPA ?
The Southern Arizona Cattlemen’s Protective Association (SACPA) represents member ranching families from Pinal, Pima and Santa Cruz Counties. SACPA was originally organized in 1955 to assist law enforcement agencies in the successful prosecution of vandalism, theft and livestock welfare crimes committed against our members and their property. Today, our primary mission remains unchanged but has expanded to include representing our membership in contentious issues emanating from litigation and government regulation; engaging our members in continuing education in diverse areas such as ranch management and livestock health, range management and ecology, wildlife issues, mining, water and environmental quality; as well as keeping the membership informed about border-related crime problems. To accomplish this, SACPA actively interfaces with numerous governmental and non-governmental entities.
Membership in SACPA is open to ranchers and their families in Pinal, Pima and Santa Cruz Counties and to our non-rancher friends and affiliated businesses. New members must be approved by the Board of Directors. If you are interested in becoming a member, click here and download the SACPA membership application. Email or mail it back for review by the SACPA Board of Directors.
