Youth Beef Leaders Seminar
Dates: December 14-16, 2022 – Wooster, Ohio



Certified Angus Beef (CAB) invites aspiring Angus leaders to the Youth Beef Leaders Seminar, December 14-16, 2022, at the CAB office in Wooster, OH. This event welcomes the NJAA Board of Directors, Miss American Angus, and leaders from the Canadian Junior Angus Association. Additionally, CAB will accept five qualified candidates for an all-expense paid trip to join this year’s class. Applications will be accepted through October 16, 2022. Eligible applicants should be enrolled in undergraduate or graduate college with academic and career goals associated with the field of animal science, meat science, food science, or any other related agricultural industry. Certified Angus Beef sees value in producers completing animal care training like Beef Quality Assurance or other equivalent certification programs to convey their commitment to cattle care to consumers. Applicants are encouraged to provide their certification status in such programs.


Participants in the Youth Beef Leaders Seminar will experience growth as an Angus leader through the following:


  • A look inside the global protein market and where the Certified Angus Beef ® brand fits.  
  • Learn what the ultimate beef consumer wants – beyond the pasture.
  • Insight about the consumer marketing message used to create pull-through demand for the best Angus beef.
  • An interactive carcass grading and fabrication session with corporate meat scientists.
  • See how the value created by the brand equates to more dollars for registered Angus breeders.
  • Network with staff members and other young beef industry leaders from across North America.


Each year, CAB supports several initiatives and internships to help young Angus leaders eager to build a career that ultimately drives the supply and demand for high-quality beef. Graduates of the Youth Beef Leaders Seminar will be well equipped to communicate about the CAB brand, consumer beef demand, and the value of high-quality beef to today’s Angus ranchers.


To be considered for attendance, complete the application by October 16, 2022. Winners will be contacted by phone before Thanksgiving. Questions can be directed to KLee@certifiedangusbeef.com.


We look forward to hosting this year’s young Angus leaders!
