Illinois Livestock Leadership Institute

Due to scheduling conflicts, the 2024 Illinois Livestock Leadership Institute trip will not be held in 2024. Please visit our website and follow our social media platforms for more information on youth opportunities available through the Illinois Pork Producers Association.


We look forward to seeing you in 2025!


ILLI is an annual summer trip that focuses on leadership, citizenship, and communication skills through hands-on experiences. Youth will learn about pork, beef and dairy production, research, consumer information and issues that affect the livestock industry today.

ILLI participants must be 16-20 years old by the time of trip. ILLI participants need not be pork/beef/dairy producers or from pork/beef/dairy producing families but must exhibit a sincere interest in the livestock industry and agriculture. It is hosted in a different location each year.
