Leadership programs help young beef producers succeed

By Kylene Scott

Leadership opportunities abound for young farmers and ranchers. From commodity groups to livestock associations, many offer programs to help members gain leadership skills and experience new and unique aspects of their particular industry.

Groups like the Kansas Livestock Association and the Nebraska Cattlemen have programs to help leaders hone their skills. On the national level, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association allows members to experience a number of different aspects of their chosen industry through the Young Cattlemen’s Conference each year.
