2015WinterYAP

What will 700 young farmers and ag professionals learn, discuss?

Just a few short years ago the Ohio Farm Bureau Young Ag Professionals Conference had around 100 attendees. Fast forward to this weekend and there are now more than 700 young farmers and agricultural professionals who are coming together in Columbus for fun, fellowship and learning. The conference, organized by a committee of Young Ag Professionals leaders, will feature 25 workshops, networking, a keynote speech from Monsanto Executive Vice President Dr. Robert Fraley and a performance by the band The Henningsens. With 700 passionate food and farm advocates coming together for one event there is no doubt it will be the place to be this weekend.

To follow along with all the conference happenings, you can find live tweets on Twitter with the Hashtag #YAP16. Photos from the event also will be shared on the Young Ag Professionals Facebook page.
