Welcome to the Young Livestock Exporters Network

The Young Livestock Exporters Network was established in 2019 by young industry professionals, for young industry professionals. YLEN's vision is to build networks and leadership through pathways of professional development within the livestock export supply chain.

The network is underpinned by two key pillars:

  • Career development of members through providing pathways to professional development opportunities.
  • Building relationships through networking opportunities.
