— Get Involved at 2012 Convention & NCBA Trade Show

WASHINGTON – The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) will host a number of youth contests at the 2012 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show. NCBA encourages all youth interested in agriculture to participate in the NCBA youth contests that will be held Feb. 1-4, in Nashville, Tenn.

The 2012 contests include public speaking, team marketing, beef quiz bowl and cattle judging. Each contest offers a number of different age divisions allowing youth from 4-H members to college students to participate. Bill Donald, NCBA president said the NCBA youth contests are where future industry leaders can come together to showcase their talents.

“The Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show and youth contests unite all of our industry under one roof,” Donald said. “Everyone always looks forward to seeing the best and brightest young people that our industry has to offer through the youth contests and I encourage everyone to participate.”

 The 2012 youth contests are sponsored by Farm Credit and open to anyone who meets the age requirements and is present at the 2012 Cattle Industry Convention. To register for the 2012 NCBA youth contests or for more information, visit or contact Lorie Liddicoat at
