YF&R CONNECT is a monthly meeting of young farmers and ranchers and other Farm Bureau members aimed to provide professional development and networking opportunities to members from around the country. This is a casual setting to touch base with other agriculturists while gaining exposure to top-notch presenters.
Join together with other young agriculturists as we go global with this session focused on the Nuffield International Farming Scholars program. Operating since 1947, the Nuffield International Farming Scholars program is a unique global network of farmers and agri-professionals that focuses on: personal capacity building, excellence in agricultural production, distribution, research, management, and local, national, and global thought leadership.
Nuffield International believes, “that agriculture is the foundation of a stable society, and that in order for agriculture to be dynamic, remain competitive, and serve society, we need leadership and expertise from those in the industry. The work done by Nuffield International supports the development of individuals in agriculture around the world, giving Nuffield Scholars the confidence, knowledge, and network to step up as leaders at home and on the global stage.”
