There are many great opportunities for Young Farmers and Ranchers. 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.
One aspect common to all Young Farmers and Ranchers activities is the opportunity to meet people. Whether you are participating on the county, state, or national level, there are others who share the same challenges and successes that you do. Social activities are where YF&Rs have fun and network at the same time!
Young Farmers & Ranchers
Young Farmers and Ranchers is a subcommittee of Farm Bureau for people between the ages of 18 and 35 and are involved in banking, business, production and many other areas of the agricultural industry. Young Farmers and Ranchers develop leadership skills while volunteering time as active, vital members of the Stanislaus County Farm Bureau. As a member of YF&R you will network with people throughout the state involved in agriculture and your voice will join others in speaking out for agriculture. As you develop your skills and knowledge, your efforts will help Farm Bureau to effectively represent all farmers and ranchers.
