Young Cattlemen's Conference

Since 1980, the Young Cattlemen's Conference tour has been a proven success in identifying and developing potential leaders for the beef industry. With more than 1,000 beef producers having graduated from the YCC program, many alumni continue to participate in industry committees, councils, and serve on boards, even going on to become national officers. Serving as a cornerstone of leadership training for the beef industry, YCC provides young leaders with a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of the industry, from cattle and beef production to the consumer, including exposure to the national grassroots process. Participants will also have the opportunity to visit with their elected leaders to discuss issues of critical importance to America’s cattle and beef producers and advocate for their industry during a day spent on Capitol Hill.

The 2024 YCC program will take place May 30 through June 6, 2024, and include time in Colorado, Nebraska, Ohio and Washington, D.C. For more information about the selection process, please contact your NCBA-affiliated state or breed association.
