It is also the voice of livestock producers from Weld County, providing input and leadership on policy at the local, state and national levels. Membership is open to all Weld County residents.

Funds for the WCLA scholarship program are primarily raised through the annual calf auction held at Producers Livestock and the Family Ranch Rodeo, which is held in September at the Southeast Colorado Fairgrounds in Keenesburg, Colo.
