Young Cattlemen's Leadership Program

The Alabama Cattlemen’s Association recognizes the need to cultivate our future leaders of the association and industry. The Young Cattlemen's Leadership Program (YCLP), funded in part by the Alabama State Beef Checkoff, aims to do just that by identifying the state's top young cattlemen and developing them into leaders of the future.

The three primary goals of the YCLP are:

  • Provide participants with a "pasture to plate" experience of Alabama's beef industry
  • Equip participants with the tools necessary to become an effective leader and to share their beef story with their peers
  • Create a network of young cattlemen who the ACA can depend on to help with beef promotion and issues management as well as become industry leaders in the future

The YCLP consists of six meetings dispersed across Alabama over the course of a year. The class will be selected by a committee based on applications submitted. Preference will be given to those nominees who are between the ages of 20 & 40, but do not be discouraged to nominate yourself or someone else who falls out of that range.

We encourage county chapters to cover the tuition and “buy-in” to their young leaders. If you are interested in applying to the program, complete the enclosed application and submit it with a letter of recommendation from someone you consider being an upcoming leader in your county’s cattlemen association.

Contact YCLP Program Coordinator Michael Agar for more information.
