Angus Foundation Sponsoring Trip to YCC

The Angus Foundation sponsors one individual to attend the National Cattlemen's Beef Association Young Cattlemen's Conference each year. YCC allows young leaders the chance to see first-hand and further understand all aspects of the beef industry. Attendees take a nationwide tour of the beef production chain from ranch to feedlot to packing plant, through marketing and regulatory affairs and finally ending at consumer foodservice. Angus Foundation President Milford Jenkins says it's an experience all Angus breeders should consider when broadening their industry awareness. Because education is such an important part of the Angus Foundation - Jenkins says they're pleased to be able to continue the support of an angus breeder to the Young Cattlemen's Conference. The sponsorship covers flight costs and registration fees for an NCBA member between the ages of 25 and 50. The application is due Friday (January 10) and can be found at www dot angusfoundation dot org (
