"We had another year of a truly outstanding group of applicants for the NE Cattlemen YCC class of 2020. Nebraska Cattlemen leadership and staff is looking forward to meeting and interacting with the class, hopefully providing them with extensive industry knowledge and many networking opportunities. Our goal is to spark interest within the participants, giving them the desire to come back and serve as Board Members to our state and national organization." - Ken Herz, NC President Elect.
The goal of the Young Cattlemen's Conference is to expose
young and emerging leaders to a variety of areas of the beef industry and
provide them with necessary leadership tools. During the two-year program, YCC
members are provided training on professional communication, given the
opportunity to tour multiple Nebraska-based agriculture production facilities
and learn to navigate state agencies and legislative processes.
All of this could not happen without generous sponsorship from Farm Credit Services of America and Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation.
