The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association is offering financial assistance to young producers who wish to attend the 2012 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show in Nashville, next February 1-4. NCBA is offering ten 250-dollar travel fellowships to Young Producer’s Council members to assist with travel costs and registration. NCBA members between the ages of 18-35 qualify as YPC members and are encouraged to apply for one of the fellowships.
 
Ben Neale, YPC president and rancher from McMinnville, Tennessee, says – 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. Applications must be submitted by November 11, 2011. Applications are available on NCBA’s website at http://www.beefusa.org/.
