FNBA Young Ranchers 2010 group tell our story! Why we love the land, the cattle and feeding the world.

Established in 2010, this new youth program under the Five Nations Beef Alliance attracts participation from young leaders within each nation who are passionate about the future direction of the beef industry.

Representatives between the ages of 18-35 are selected within each nation through various selection processes to take part in events held annually or bi-annually. The first gathering of the FNBA Young Ranchers took place in January 2010 when 10 beef enthusiasts experienced a jam packed week of tours, round tables and sightseeing in Denver Colorado during the International Livestock Congress held in conjunction with the world renowned National Western Stock Show.
