CCA Second Vice President Fred Chamberlin was elected by his fellow cattlemen to serve on the CCA Officer Team at the 2012 CCA Convention in Santa Clara. Chamberlin is a longtime rancher from the Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara County, who currently manages the family-owned ranch alongside his wife Joanne.
Following college, Chamberlin worked as an engineer in the Silicon Valley for two decades before returning home to the ranch. Living in a unique part of the state, Chamberlin understands well many of the burdens ranchers face and says he is concerned about a variety of issues, including loss of grazing land in California, the Estate Tax, and consumer education.
Chamberlin supports CCA because they are the only statewide organization looking out specifically for beef producers. He says local, state and national cattlemen’s associations work to keep local county boards of supervisors, regulatory agencies and legislators informed and in check.
