According to the latest Census of Agriculture, there are twice as many farmers over the age of 65 as under the age of 35, and half of agriculture land is owned by ranchers older than 75. Although extremely outnumbered, young people in agriculture refuse to be counted out, and they are working hard to impact the future of beef production through promotion and lobbying efforts.

This was the goal of the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association’s (SDCA) Young Producers’ Council (YPC) as they hosted a “Cattlemen at the Capitol,” event on Feb. 10-11, 2010 in Pierre, SD. Twelve YPC members took part in this event, their first organized effort of the new year. Leading the charge on this effort to educate state legislators was YPC President Britton Blair of Sturgis, Vice President Staci Anderson of Parkston, second Vice President Tyler Urban of Lennox and Secretary-Treasurer Cayla Christiansen of Volin.
