Since 1980, NCBA's YCC program has proven to be an effective vehicle in identifying and developing potential beef-industry leaders. Through the years, more than 600 beef producers have graduated from the YCC program. Many of these alumni participate in industry committees and councils, as well as serve on a variety of boards.

"John Deere is extremely proud to be a part of a vibrant organization like NCBA and to support this valuable industry program," said Mike Gustafson, John Deere manager of creative for the Livestock Group. "The YCC program is a perfect fit for our corporate philosophy, which is dedicated to helping young businessmen and women succeed."

As a premier provider of agricultural equipment, John Deere continues to build a natural alliance with the beef industry. "The beef industry represents a vital and important market for John Deere products. Our partnership with the industry continues to grow, and we look forward to a fulfilling relationship with this strong organization."

John Deere joins IBP (part of the Tyson Foods Family) and ContiBeef as corporate supporters of YCC.

"The John Deere brand provides an excellent association with NCBA," said Marvin Kokes, NCBA executive director, Association Services. "It is especially gratifying to add John Deere to our list of program sponsors."
