Young Farmers & Ranchers Leadership Activities
Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) participate in many leadership activities on the local and state levels. Workshops to enhance leadership skills and public speaking skills are offered at events like the YF&R Leadership Conference and the State Annual Meeting. Some of the county Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers groups also conduct leadership training sessions throughout the year. All Young Farmers & Ranchers are encouraged to participate in these opportunities.

If so, the New York Farm Bureau State Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee could be the perfect fit. The objective of the committee is to surface and develop young leaders. The committee serves as a liaison for county YF&R Committee chairs and plans the annual YF&R Conference.
