It is the vision of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association Young Cattlemen’s Council to cultivate youthful leadership by exposure to industry policy development, while allowing for the opportunity to gain experience and bring fresh insight to the table. We also strive to be a conduit of information between industry organizations and the youth of the beef industry.


YCC represents Canadian beef cattle enthusiasts aged 18-35. The board is comprised of 6 provincial delegates and 3 elected directors at large.


Board members have the opportunity to serve on CCA committees, to gain experience and provide youthful perspective on current issues. The board also takes part in various domestic and international events, round tables and meetings as a voice for Canada’s next generation of cattle producers.


YCC GENERAL MEMBERSHIP must be members of their designated provincial organization, or their parents must be. The YCC board may also approve membership applications from persons within the age range, who may not meet the other specified requirements. [apply here]
