2015 Young Cattlemen’s Conference - Jan. 20-22, 2015

Identifying and educating leaders to help guide and strengthen our beef industry is important to the future of Nebraska’s agriculture. The Nebraska Cattlemen believe that it is important for active beef producers to see all sides of the beef industry and take an active role in telling the beef story and advocating on behalf of our way of life.

This program is made possible by a generous sponsorship from Farm Credit Services of American and DuPont Pioneer.
