About MANRRS and American Farm Bureau

The National Society for Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences is an organization committed to empowering minorities in agriculture, natural resources and related sciences.

The American Farm Bureau Federation and MANRRS entered into a partnership with the goal of increasing minority involvement in agriculture. The organizations are collaborating on projects, including written content for each organization’s publications, providing leadership training and expertise, and cross promoting programs and events.

AFBF’s goal is to expand coalitions and partnerships to increase the effectiveness of its grassroots organization. Other partnerships include FFA and 4-H, which foster the growth of young people interested in pursuing careers in agriculture.
