Howard Young and Frank Baker were instrumental in establishing the ACF and securing a home for the ACA and a learning center for the youth of Arkansas. The late Mr. Young, as Executive Vice President of the ACA, provided the roots for continued growth of the association. The late Dr. Baker provided professional input that helped create the Arkansas Cattlemen’s Foundation Learning and Heritage Center. Both Young and Baker worked closely together for the benefit of Arkansas cattlemen.
