The KLA Young Stockmen’s Academy (YSA), targeted for young adults in their 20s, is designed to develop young members through industry exposure, education and association communication.    

YSA consists of a series of four seminars that expose participants to leaders from all segments of the industry, including purebred, cow-calf, backgrounding, dairy, feeding, processing, retail, foodservice, animal health, marketing, finance, etc. Essential to the overall program are educational sessions and business/financial management training. The seminars provide participants the opportunity to further explore our business, gain essential information and network with fellow KLA members.    

Participants are selected through a competitive application process. For more information, contact the KLA office at (785) 273-5115 or email Shelbi Wiggs.

The application deadline for the 2022 YSA class has passed. Applications for 2023 will be available this fall.
