Strong Alberta representation in Canadian Cattle Young Leaders Mentorship Pairings

Canadian Cattle Young Leaders is pleased to highlight the industry-leading mentors who are kindly investing their expertise and time to lend a helping hand to the next generation of the Canadian beef industry.

The 2023-2024 program year pairings have strong roots in the Alberta cattle industry, including [now previous] Alberta Beef Producers Vice Chair, Sheila Hillmer, serving as a mentor.

Each year, the Canadian Cattle Young Leaders (CYL) Program selects 16 program participants ages 18-35
from across the country and offers industry networking, travel and skill-building opportunities.
There is an exciting array of mentorship focus areas this year, including sustainable grazing practices, business planning, industry leadership, succession planning, livestock handling and welfare, feedlot production and much more.

“Now, more than ever, there is a growing need to invest and support the youth of our industry to ensure a successful future,” said Nathan Phinney, President of the Canadian Cattle Association (CCA).
The formal portion of these mentorships began in November 2023 and will conclude at the end of July 2024. Each CYL participant is granted a $2,000 budget through the program thanks to the generosity of our program sponsors to fund various learning opportunities, such as travel to see their mentors and attending industry events.

To learn more about this year’s mentorships pairings, you can visit our participant spotlight page on our website at canadiancattleyoungleaders.ca.

Applications for the 2024-2025 program year are now available at canadiancattleyoungleaders.ca until March 31, 2024, where young people involved in all areas of the beef supply chain ages 18-35 are encouraged to apply.
