Title: Beltway Beef Audio News

Cattlemen work 365 days a year to provide wholesome and nutritious beef for a growing global population. However, they are seldom afforded the opportunity to see all segments of the beef industry from farm to fork. And few cattlemen get to walk the halls of Congress in Washington, D.C., advocating for commonsense, science-based policies and regulations.

NCBA long ago recognized the value in taking cattlemen out of their comfort zone and introducing them to all segments of the beef cattle community. In 1980, NCBA began what is called the Young Cattlemen’s Conference (YCC). Since that time, more than 1,000 young cattlemen and women have participated and gone on to become leaders in the industry. Levi Berry, a young cattleman from Happy, Texas, got that opportunity a year ago and he is back this week as leader of the pack.

"As individuals, we have limited resources... aid in keeping the "wolves" such as government, environmental and radical groups, off of our door steps. NCBA is there every day protecting our industry."
