Recently, I worked with K-State’s Beef Cattle Institute and the Kansas Beef Council to host the first hands on training for NCBA‘s Master’s of Beef Advocacy (MBA) training program. The program consists of six online training models, covering topics ranging from nutrition to the environment, as well as a hands on session. NCBA’s Executive Director of Communications Daren Williams led our training where 39 Kansas producers, Ag businesspeople, and students participated in mock interviews and online advocacy training.
To learn more about the MBA program read the Beef Board press release about the first MBA graduation or read the Abilene Reflector-Chronicle story about it. Those interested in signing up a program can request an application from firstname.lastname@example.org. NCBA’s new Young Producers Council (YPC) is planning on having a graduation ceremony durning Beef Industry Summer Conference (July 14-18) in Denver.
