Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee

Join us for Networking and
Professional Development

Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers are active agriculturists –between the ages of 18 and 35 and involved in production, banking, business, and many other areas of the industry. Young Farmers and Ranchers develop leadership skills while volunteering time as active, vital members of the County Farm Bureaus.

As a member of Young Farmers and Ranchers your voice will join those of your peers to speak out for agriculture. As you develop your skills and knowledge, your efforts will help Farm Bureau to effectively represent all farmers and ranchers.


Our Current Activities include:

Build Valuable Contacts

There are many returns for your time and effort as a Young Farmers and Ranchers participant.

You will have the opportunity to attend seminars focusing on leadership training, and you will gain valuable insights into all aspects of agriculture. You will learn how to promote your commodity as well as your industry. You will learn about issues and how to resolve them.

You will also make valuable professional contacts. You will meet and work with your elected officials. You will make friends for life with other young people in agriculture who share the same interests and challenges that you face daily.


Leadership Development

Young Farmers and Ranchers hosts a statewide Leadership Conference each year to promote engagement, networking, and leadership skill development.  Scholarships from the local County Farm Bureau committee may be available, inquire with the local committee chair.

Leadership Farm Bureau is another great resource for young agricultural professionals, especially if you are interested in serving on your County’s Farm Bureau Board of Directors, or in a leadership role.  Over 200 hours of instruction are provided to the applicants who are selected each year for the program.  To be in LFB you must join and be a current member of your local Farm Bureau.
