We are excited to announce the 2022 AFBF Young Farmers & Ranchers Competitive Events sponsors. Ford, Case IH, and Stanley Black & Decker are returning sponsors and will be joined by the newest sponsor – American Agricultural Insurance Company. Farm Bureau thanks them for their continued support in recognizing our outstanding young farmers and ranchers.
The YF&R program helps young Farm Bureau members shape their future and American agriculture through leadership development and personal growth opportunities. Three competitions enable members to showcase their leadership experience, communication skills and successful business plans as they compete against the best of the best from each state Farm Bureau.
As part of the YF&R competitions, the top four competitors in the Achievement Award, Discussion Meet and Excellence in Ag areas will receive:
Winner (1st Place): a new Ford vehicle (up to a value of $35,000) and paid registration to the Farm Bureau YF&R Conference in Louisville, Kentucky, courtesy of Ford.
