MSGA Accepting Applications for NCBA’s Young Cattlemen’s Conference; Encourages Young Producers to Apply by March 15

HELENA, Mont. (February 15, 2024) – Montana Stockgrowers Association (MSGA) is accepting applications for its Young Cattlemen’s Conference scholarship. The conference will take place May 30 – June 6, 2024, and applications are due March 15, 2024. 

The Young Cattlemen’s Conference (YCC) is an opportunity for cattlemen and cattlewomen between the ages of 25 and 50 to visit segments of the beef industry across the nation with young cattlemen from other states. Facilitated by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), participants will travel with national attendees to Denver and Washington D.C.

Participants will also have the opportunity to visit the offices of Montana’s congressional delegation to discuss issues of critical importance to America’s cattle and beef producers and advocate for their industry during a day spent on Capitol Hill.

MSGA will select up to three participants to represent MSGA on this year’s YCC trip. Selected participants will receive support to cover the cost of the program registration along with $500 for travel expenses. Program support is made possible by MSGA’s Young Stockgrowers and the Montana Stockgrowers Foundation (MSF). Attendees of the Young Cattlemen’s Conference must be members of Montana Stockgrowers Association and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.
