WyFB Regular YF&R and Collegiate Discussion Meet are scheduled for November
Farm Bureau members between the ages of 18-35 and college students in Wyoming are invited to participate in the 2018 Discussion Meet competitions. There are two different competitions that will be held during the Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation (WyFB) Annual Meeting in Sheridan in November.
The first competition is the Regular WyFB Young Farmer & Rancher (YF&R) Discussion Meet; Farm Bureau regular members between the ages of 18-35 are eligible. The second competition is the WyFB YF&R Collegiate Discussion Meet; any student attending a Wyoming college is eligible.
Being an advocate for agriculture is more important now than ever and should be a part of everyone’s business plan. Develop your leadership and advocacy skills and meet other young farmers and ranchers from around the state and around the nation by participating in the YF&R Discussion Meet competitions.
