LINCOLN, NE (November 22, 2022) – Nebraska Cattlemen is proud to announce the Young Cattlemen’s Connections (YCC) Class of 2023. The selection committee chose ten emerging leaders for the prestigious two-year program to help these participants develop a solid foundation of industry knowledge and to strengthen the future of Nebraska’s beef industry. 
Nebraska Cattlemen President-elect Steve Hanson stated, “There were many outstanding applicants who made our decision process difficult, and we are grateful for their participation. The YCC Class of 2023 is a talented group of individuals. I look forward to watching this group strengthen their industry knowledge and leadership skills as we set up the future of the beef community for success.”
During the two-year program, YCC members are provided with extensive communication training, given the opportunity to tour multiple Nebraska-based agriculture production facilities, and trained on how to navigate state agencies and legislative processes.
