Young Cattlemen: Travel Vouchers for Convention

Nov 03, 2011
The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) is offering financial assistance to young producers who wish to attend the 2012 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show. NCBA is offering ten $250 travel fellowships to Young Producer’s Council (YPC) members to assist with travel costs and registration. 
 
YPC is an active player in NCBA policy development and is working to cultivate more peer members to serve as industry advocates. NCBA members between the ages of 18-35 qualify as YPC members and are encouraged to apply for one of the fellowships.
 
The fellowships will help young producers attend the convention in Nashville, Tenn., Feb. 1-4, 2012. Ben Neale, YPC president and rancher from McMinnville, Tenn., said the opportunity to get involved with NCBA members and staff at the convention will be beneficial to all young producers.
 
“We encourage all YPC members to consider applying for these fellowships and to get involved with the YPC program,” Neale said. “This is a great opportunity for young members to engage in policy decisions, network with many industry leaders and grow as leaders in this organization.”
 
In order to apply for the 2012 Travel Fellowship, applications must be submitted by Nov. 11, 2011. Applications are available on NCBA’s website at www.beefusa.org. Any questions regarding the application or application process should be directed to Ben Neale at bneale@thebeefconnection.com or to Travis Hoffman at travis.hoffman@colostate.edu.   
 
When you get to the show, make sure you stop by the Farm Journal's Beef Today booth and say “Hi!”
