Colorado Cattlemen's Agricultural Land Trust

The Colorado Cattlemen's Agricultural Land Trust protects Colorado's agricultural land, heritage and families for future generations by conserving working rural landscapes. We will continue to focus on working landscapes with long-term agricultural viability to ensure a future for Colorado’s agricultural productivity and the quality of life for all of our citizens.

CCALT was formed in 1995 by the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) to help Colorado’s ranchers and farmers protect their agricultural lands and encourage the intergenerational transfer of ranches and farms.  CCA was the first state livestock association in the nation to form a land trust. Five other state livestock associations have followed suit, including Wyoming, California, Kansas, Texas, and Oregon.

Since 1995, CCALT has partnered with landowners across Colorado to protect productive agricultural land.  This work has helped agricultural families to achieve their estate planning goals, pay down debt, save for retirement, pay for long-term health care and college education, diversify and expand operations, and preserve their agricultural heritage.  It has also helped to preserve the natural resources that make Colorado such a special place to live and visit.
