Hill Country CattleWomen (HCCW)
We are teachers, real estate agents, lawyers, business owners, policewomen, accountants, flight attendants, principals, judges, ranchers…we are CattleWomen. Our members join a community of women committed to preserving the Texas ranching heritage. The goal of Hill Country Cattlewomen is to promote and support the production of beef and the beef industry through cooperation with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raiser Association (TSWCRA), American National CattleWomen (ANCWA), Texas CattleWomen (TCWA), and local beef supporters. HCCW supports private property rights and encourages federal and state legislation that will maintain and protect property rights.
Our membership covers 14 counties in the beautiful Texas Hill Country including Bandera, Bexar, Blanco, Edwards, Gillespie, Kendall, Kerr, Kimble, Llano, Mason, McCulloch, Menard, Real and San Saba.
