The event is open to Farm Bureau members only, who are between the ages of 18-35.The Young Ag Professionals Committee has created a great agenda for the conference. There will be more than 12 breakout sessions Saturday, March 22. Topics range from “Generational Tsransition” to “Marketing your Farm Product” to “Healthy Family Meals using Local Foods”. Friday night’s entertainment will include a hypnotist. This conference will provide something for everyone.
The cost of the conference is $100/person or $150 per couple. Contact your county office to find out what portion of the cost will be subsidized by the county farm bureau.
