Established in 1970, the association will be celebrating the last 50 years of involvement with the Central Australian Show Society in 2021.

Throughout this time the Association has been promoting the interests of Beef Cattle Breeders in Central Australia and the improvement of Beef Cattle quality. This is achieved by encouraging high standards of judging beef cattle at Agriculture and Livestock Shows; and also by promoting the interests of exhibitors.

CBBA also believe that for the Centralian Cattle industry to strengthen and prosper we must sustain our youth and provide them with the tools and knowledge that they will need in the future. Over many years numerous junior exhibitors have gone on to participate at interstate Cattle Shows with the support of the CBBA and Rabobank. Since 2012 the CBBA with support from the Australian Beef Industry Foundation (ABIF), have been able to send a local beef cattle producer to attend a one week Leadership course at the Marcus Oldham College in Geelong.
