About San Diego County CowBelles

We are a local unit of the California CattleWomen's Association, an auxiliary of the San Diego/Imperial County Cattlemen's Association.

Our group is a diverse group of women who are dedicated to promoting the American beef industry and the keep the Cowboy Heritage alive. We volunteer our time and resources advocating beef and the cattle industry. In 1953, our founders developed The San Diego County CowBelles and have been promoting and educating the public about the many aspects that beef and cattle have to offer. Many of our members are still active generational cattle ranchers (some of these ranches are over a 100 years old!)


We take great pride in the program our Ag in the Classroom offers.  Our group participates in teacher workshops, lesson plans and on-campus presentations featuring topics involving beef, cattle ranching, and traditions.

We participate in local fairs in San Diego County such as the East County Junior Fair in Lakeside, Ramona Junior Fair and the San Diego County Fair. We proudly sponsor awards at these three fairs for the 4H and FFA students in the beef classes. We have our beautiful and informative booth present at the fairs to enlighten and educate the public about the many aspects of beef and ranching lifestyle. 

We have a lovely library of recipes, hand outs and other information that we kindly share with the community.


One of our main goals is to encourage the youth to become beef advocates and leaders for our future in the agricultural industry. We are proud to provide yearly scholarships to these individuals who have completed at least one year of college. (Please view our scholarship tab for more information.)

The CowBelles are committed to educating and promoting beef and cattle ranchers who work diligently every day to put high quality meat on the table for families across the USA. Cook beef today and reach out to us for more information!
