Cattlemen’s Young Leaders Program Mentors Announced

Calgary, AB – The Cattlemen’s Young Leaders (CYL) Development Program is pleased to announce the industry leaders who will mentor the Alberta participants in the pilot phase of the mentorship initiative.

The CYL program, a national youth initiative of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA), provides industry-specific training and mentorship opportunities to producers between the ages of 18 and 35. This experience will provide CYL participants with the opportunity to explore a potential career choice or involvement with a provincial/national producer organization, while gaining the expertise and business acumen necessary to sustain the cattle industry into the future.

The CYL program also welcomes the Canadian Cattlemen Magazine as an Official Supporter. Canada’s only national beef publication will profile candidates with their mentors in a special section called Young Leaders. These stories will provide readers with insight on the CYL program participants' experiences, with an emphasis of where they see themselves fitting in as a future leader in the beef industry.
