OCA EVENTS & PROGRAM

Young Cattlemen's Conference

August 18-20, 2016

Every summer, young cattlemen meet in Central Ohio for an unforgettable three-day event. The Ohio Cattlemen’s Association’s (OCA) Young Cattlemen’s Conference and Tour (YCC) features many exciting and educational opportunities for beef industry leaders and cattle producers alike. The event offers industry insight and enhanced networking for attendees to take home and use in their own operations to keep them progressive and profitable.

Participants are challenged to think outside the box, as they practice their public relations skills and learn the best ways to present their operations and the beef industry as a whole to consumers. They have the chance to visit the Ohio Statehouse and discuss current issues with elected officials, as well as, learn more about the product they produce by participating in a mini Beef 509 at the Ohio State University Animal Sciences Department. To top it all off, attendees have the opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Ohio State Football practice facility and enjoy a fun-filled evening at a Columbus Clippers Baseball game.

YCC is open to any OCA member over the age of 20 who possesses great leadership potential and is active in their community. Counties are encouraged to nominate participants for YCC, but individuals may also self-nominate. Couples are also encouraged to attend. The cost is $150 per participant or $250 for couples, and nomination forms and payment must be submitted to the Ohio Cattlemen’s Foundation by June 24, 2016. All meals and a two-night hotel stay will be covered by program sponsors.
