The beginning of Wyoming’s Cow-Belles

by Wyoming Livestock Roundup

Organized on June 6, 1940 as Wyoming’s Cow-Belles, the original group was headed by Charlotte Snodgrass and consisted of ladies who wanted to do more for the livestock industry. 

In 1992 the name changed to Wyoming CattleWomen, Inc. to reflect the more professional organization. The primary goal of Wyoming CattleWomen has not changed throughout the years – to maintain and increase the demand for beef and to promote a positive image of the cattle industry.

Wyoming CattleWomen is a group of dedicated individuals who believe the livestock industry is of basic importance to world existence. Their objective is to develop educational awareness about BEEF and to promote a better understanding of the various roles the beef industry plays in the environment and the national economy.

Wyoming CattleWomen bring the best of volunteerism to the beef industry. They are active in education, beef promotion and industry issues and are affiliated with the American National CattleWomen and support a number of their national projects. Wyoming CattleWomen work closely with the Wyoming Beef Council, Wyoming Stock Growers Association, Wyoming Agriculture in the Classroom as well as local Cow-Belles/CattleWomen organizations.
