Student Memberships*

The NYFB Young Farmers & Ranchers Program has been working to develop future agricultural leaders by becoming more involved with youth in FFA, 4-H and at agricultural colleges.  There are Collegiate Chapters of New York Farm Bureau at Cornell University and SUNY Cobleskill.  By involving these agricultural youth, the Young Farmers & Ranchers Program can foster new leaders for not only their program and New York Farm Bureau, but for the agricultural industry as a whole.

Student memberships are available for members who are between the ages of 16-21.

4-H and FFA members who are high school juniors and seniors and collegiate students with an agricultural major are eligible for a complimentary NYFB student membership.
