Cultivating the Next Generation of Cattle Industry Leaders

By Crystal Lister, American Braunvieh Youth Development Foundation

The journey to establishing the American Braunvieh Youth Development Foundation was not an easy one. After all, anything worthwhile is often met with pushback. Former agricultural educators, businessmen and women, farmers and ranchers – all of whom are breeders with Braunvieh backgrounds – spearheaded the idea of a foun dation benefiting our youth; after all, the future of agricul ture lies with them. The foundation was established in 2022 by a board of

directors heavily involved in the Braunvieh industry. Those directors are committed to developing responsible, moti vated, educated beef industry leaders while promoting an understanding of the values and trajectory of the Braunvieh breed. Cultivating young leaders is at the forefront of the foundation’s goals. Educating our youth, developing leader ship skills and encouraging young people to return to the agriculture industry is our focus. Leadership, education and research are the pillars of our mission. These pillars are the motivation behind all fundraising efforts. The American Braunvieh Youth Development Foundation conducts projects throughout the United States in con junction with universities, private firms, farms and ranches, all funded solely through donations. Some projects in clude artificial insemination school, embryo transfer, palpation, cattle judging, steer feed-out programs, carcass evalu ations, genomic testing, leadership clinics, public speaking opportunities, team-building activities, digital advertising, as well as business marketing strategies. The American Braunvieh Youth Development Foundation believes the impact on these young people will be instrumen tal in their development, both currently and in the future. We strive to recognize and reward the development of essential life principles and values, and believe these efforts will cultivate the next generation of cattle industry leaders. We believe in our mission and look forward to partnering with you. For details on how you can partner with us, please email . BW
