Thema will be working her writing and editing magic all over Saffire’s marketing efforts!
When she’s not writing all the things, Thema enjoys exploring Austin with her husband and two big fur babies, doing yoga outside and eating lots of tacos.

The Alabama Cattlemen’s Association has joined the Saffire family! We could not be any more excited to work with such a historical organization!
The start of the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association began with Luther Fuller, a farm products agent for the Tennessee Coal, Iron, and Railway Company (T.C.I.) based out of Birmingham, Alabama. In ACA’s first year, the statewide membership included only 40 members. Over the years, strong and dedicated leaders helped ACA to grow its ranks to a high point of 18,620 members in 1974. Because ACA’s strength lies in its network of county chapters and volunteer leaders, ACA is sure to continue as a voice for cattlemen in Alabama for years to come.
We will be rolling out the new ACA website and design soon, so stay tuned!!
