Join Farm Bureau Members at AFBF YF&R Leadership Conference in Florida


Tue, Aug 3rd, 2010
Posted in Agriculture

Join Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers (YF&R) from Minnesota at the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) YF&R Leadership Conference, February 4-8, 2011 in Orlando, Florida.



This interactive conference brings together 800 young farmers and ranchers ages 18-35 from at least 45 states. The leadership conference offers motivational speakers, mini-sessions, networking, entertainment and the Collegiate Discussion Meet competition.



Conference attendees will hear from Dick Wittman who will focus on business management practices, which are often the reason family operations dissolve business relationships or fail in their efforts to achieve viable business succession. Andrew McCrea will take you to the farm and around the globe as he uses his experiences as a rancher and an award-winning journalist to share the story of the 'extra' that makes people and businesses stand out among the rest.



The Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) supports the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) YF&R program by providing 20 - $250 scholarships on a first come, first serve basis to the AFBF YF&R Leadership Conference. Recipients must be Farm Bureau members and/or MCGA members and have attended the MFBF Young Farmers and Ranchers Conference.



Registration is $925 and due October 25. Registration includes airfare, hotel, conference fees and most meals. Reimbursements will be made if flight prices decrease. Registration forms can be found at www.fbmn.org. For registration information, call 651-768-2115 or email kschaefer@fbmn.org.



Minnesota Farm Bureau is comprised of 78 local Farm Bureaus who represent farmers, families and food across Minnesota. Members make their views known to political leaders, state government officials, special interest groups and the general public. Programs for young farmers and ranchers help develop leadership skills and improve farm management. Promotion and Education Committee members work with programs such as Ag in the Classroom and safety education for children. Join Farm Bureau today and support our efforts to serve as an advocate for rural Minnesota, www.fbmn.org.
