The American Lamb Board is seeking three candidates to represent the United States in the Young Guns Leadership Program at LambEx in Australia. The American Lamb Board believes producer education is of the utmost importance for the long-term viability of the American sheep industry.
The program is intended to broaden the understanding of new innovation and technologies in sheep production practices. This leadership development forum will provide innovative and progressive opportunities for young producers to increase American production efficiencies and provide a consistent, high-quality, premium product for continued lamb demand growth and increasing the American market share.
Each country (Australia, United States and New Zealand) will select two or three producers between the ages of 22 and 40 years of age who exhibit leadership potential to participate in the forum. The program is July 1-3 and will kick-off in Melbourne at the 2020 LambEx.
Airfare, hotel and other travel expenses will be covered for the participants that are selected by the ALB’s selection committee to represent the United States. Participants will be responsible for some meals, as well as incidentals.
Applicants must complete the written application. Applications are due by Feb. 28. Review of applications will be the first week of March. Phone interviews may be requested following the review. For questions and more information, contact the ALB office at firstname.lastname@example.org
