Lance Sennett, vice president of the Indiana Beef Cattle Association, was one of more than 60 young cattlemen and women selected to participate in the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association 35th Young Cattlemen’s Conference. Sennett was sponsored by Indiana Beef Cattle Association (IBCA). The YCC program is a comprehensive, nationwide tour of beef industry sectors, created to enhance leadership skills in our beef industry professionals. “The participants selected to attend YCC were chosen because of their exceptional contributions to the beef industry and their potential to be a strong voice in our future development. I look forward to working with Lance as he assumes an increased leadership role within IBCA and the beef industry as a whole.” said Joe Moore, IBCA Executive Vice President.
A native of Waynetown, Ind., Sennett and his family own and operate Sennett Cattle where they feed 2,000 head per year as well as run 200 brood cows. The family produces breeding stock of Lim-Flex, Angus, Hereford, Simmental, and Maine/Chianina cattle. They also have an extensive grain farming operation.
In addition to being the past president of the North American Limousin Foundation, the Sennett family also received the NCBA environmental stewardship award for Region I in 2008.
“YCC is an excellent opportunity to network with other young industry professionals while learning about the opportunities and challenges that face beef producers daily,” said Sennett.
