Our 2019 Move to the Stockyards

In this section of LeaderCare, we will be updating you weekly on what is going on with our relocation to the Stockyards Historic District.
Want to know what if going on in the Fort Worth Stockyards 24/7. Check out this live cam located at https://www.webcamtaxi.com/en/usa/texas/fort-worth-stockyards.html. Perched on roof of the Cowtown Coliseum, the  live cam faces south and the Horse & Mule Barns. APHA’s new office will be toward the back of the West Mule Barn, located in the center of the cam image. If you watch the feed at 11:30 am and 4:00 pm CST, you will be able to view the Fort Worth Herd’s twice-daily cattle drive. Once construction begins on APHA’s new office, a web cam will be installed so you can see the building come to life.
