The Young Farmers and Ranchers, an integral part of Kansas Farm Bureau, are hard-working agriculture professionals dedicated to developing their leadership skills and empowering others to become actively involved in agriculture advocacy, promotion and education.
The Young Farmers & Ranchers program offers opportunities for KFB members between the ages of 18 and 35 years old to connect with their peers through activities, issues and projects geared toward the younger agriculture audience. Get a taste of what’s out there at the annual YF&R Leaders Conference on the last weekend of January, participate in a competition and get involved in local activities. County programs vary based on the interest of local members, but include opportunities to network, educate, advocate, lead and serve. Get involved in your county or the state YF&R program by contacting your county coordinator today.
More than 450 young farmers and ranchers from across the state attended a three-day Kansas Farm Bureau conference designed to maximize efficiency on their family operations.
The annual Kansas Farm Bureau (KFB) Photo Contest is hosted by the state Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) Committee. The contest is open to any amateur photographer who is a Farm Bureau® member of any county in Kansas.
Join more than 500 young men and women from across Kansas to engage in agriculture education, be motivated by speakers, connect with industry resources and network with peers. This year’s theme, Maximizing Efficiency, is focused on how you can do more with less. Whether it be higher yields, improved conservation, stronger family relationships, or a more powerful voice for agriculture, this event will empower attendees to return home with the tools and knowledge to make positive changes for their farms, families and communities. Talk to your county board or coordinator today about attending the 2016 Kansas YF&R Leaders Conference!
