The Young Cattlemen’s Council is excited to unveil our new website designed to connect young beef enthusiasts from across Canada. As a Council, we’ve often discussed how we can strive to be a conduit of information between industry and young beef producers, and we look forward to using our website as a tool to do so.
We are grateful to have had the design expertise of Bree Patterson through her company Just.Ag Productions. Bree is a member of the Young Cattlemen's Council and has done an excellent job in helping us create a platform best suited for providing information to the next generation of the beef industry.
We hope you'll join us here "At the Water Trough" where we will be posting our latest news, along with industry events and resources. You can also give us a follow on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on what’s happening with YCC and in the beef industry.
If you are a young person in the industry looking to connect with like-minded individuals, please be sure to check out our Join the Council page to read more on how you can become involved with YCC.
Until next time, take care and stay safe.
- YCC President, Kayla Weston
