Welcome to Lane County Livestock Association
The Lane County Livestock Association (LCLA) was founded in 1939 and has operated continuously in Lane County since then. It is the primary association for livestock producers in Lane County and is associated with the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association.

The LCLA has three primary functions: To serve as a social connection between producers, to sponsor producer education and third to support youth programs through 4-H, FFA and the County Fair.

LCLA has worked closely with OSU Extension since the closure of the traditional Extension Office in Lane County and the rebirth of a livestock extension arrangement between LCLA and the Western Oregon Extension Agent.

The LCLA sponsors an annual youth auction at the end of the County Fair where a variety of marketable animals are sold to the public. More recently, 2015, an Annual Youth Producer of the Year Award was started to encourage more youth to become involved in agriculture.

The LCLA works closely with the Lane County Fair Board. The primary point of contact for county fair participants is the website at www.atthefair.com.

  Youth Producer of the Year
The LCLA started a new tradition in 2015 so that we could spotlight one of our Youth Producers at our Annual Dinner. Last year's winner was Kristina Roberts of Pleasant Hill.

The LCLA is pleased to honor a youth, 21 years and under, who is raising and producing livestock (cattle, goats, sheep and/or pigs), to be sold on the open market, shown at county/state fairs, entered in open competitions or some other similar event. The winner will be recognized at the Annual LCLA Dinner, receive a plaque, an embroidered coat, a free membership to the LCLA and a gift certificate from our sponsor(s). The top three applicants will receive their dinner free and a LCLA hat. You must be present at the Annual Dinner to win. The dinner will be held in January or February 2016 - TBA.

Remember that you are entering a competition and your application will be carefully compared to all the other applicants by a selection committee appointed by the LCLA Board. You need to complete the application; being careful of spelling, grammar and neatness. Your application must be filled out by you personally. If you are selected as one of the top 3 applicants you will be interviewed by the selection committee.

If you are interested in applying for this award, carefully read over and send us a written page providing the following information. Please include a short biography telling about yourself.
