"Beef Leadership Academy has given me the opportunity to network with the next generation of cattlemen and women, both professionally and socially. Knowing that we are all going to face the same challenges that 21st-century beef production has to offer, it is a good feeling to be able to expand my network within the Illinois cattle industry.  "
