Saskatchewan Young Canadian Simmental Association (SYCSA)

The SYCSA is one of the leading youth programs in the Canadian cattle industry today. The program focuses on education, teamwork, and hands-on experience for young, future cattle people.

Every summer the SYCSA hosts the Tiger Lily Classic. Along with the traditional showing of cattle, competitors must also complete herdsman and sire summary quizzes, and compete in an animal judging competition. Additionally, several other competitions are also often held, such as graphic marketing, sales talk, public speaking, and team showing. All of these events are completed WITHOUT parental assistance. The age groups involved in the YCSA range from under 10 to 25 years old, so the youth are always actively helping each other out.

Anyone can become a member of the SYCSA - even if you do not have registered Simmental cattle! If you would like to become a member, you can CONTACT US for more information!
