Tennessee's Top Tier SPONSORED BY Merck Animal Health

Tennessee’s Top Tier (TTT) sponsored by Merck Animal Health is a youth program of the Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association (TCA) and Tennessee Cattlemen’s Youth Association (TCYA) that exclusively recognizes and rewards TCYA members for their participation and placings through a series of sanctioned junior cattle shows. The TTT program is designed to increase youth involvement at junior cattle shows in Tennessee, promote commitment to the cattle industry at a young age, and allow youth the opportunity to network with their peers and industry leaders.

 

The TTT program is coordinated by the TCA Board of Directors and its staff. TTT strives to provide an environment for friendly competition and success while serving as an opportunity to create the next generation of leaders by educating juniors on beef industry issues, promoting family membership and participation in TCA, and rewarding the successful accomplishments and hard work of Tennessee’s youth cattlemen.
