Florida Cattlemen's Association


History of Florida’s Cattle Industry Though it may seem unapparent today in the mist of many tourist attractions and urban communities, Florida’s landscape was once a vast area for livestock pastures. In 1521 Ponce de Leon brought horses and cattle to Florida, making it the oldest cattle raising state in the country. For many years the cattle industry has contributed to Florida both environmentally and economically. Multi-generational family ranches have cared for our land and created employment for many Florida residents over time. As Florida matured, tourism expanded and urbanization began to cover much of the green open land that had contributed to Florida’s unique environment for so long. Florida’s cattle industry is one of the 15 largest in the United States. Centered around birthing and raising calves without much of the concerns that come with the beef processing part of the system, Florida’s cattlemen are dedicated to the preservation of Florida’s green ranch land. As a large industry within the state, cattle ranchers significantly support Florida’s interstate economy and provide jobs as well as beef. The cattle industry supports a vast network of associated businesses. These allies include (but are not limited to) feed companies, heavy machinery corporations and fertilizer manufacturers. This integrated web of economic organizations helps create jobs and business opportunities in Florida. Additionally, Florida’s cattlemen have been strong supporters of Florida’s youth and culture. From county fair displays to scholarship contests, Florida’s cattlemen have worked diligently to give back to the communities they serve.
