The New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau's Young Farmers & Ranchers program includes both men and women between the ages of 18 & 35. The objective of the YF&R program is to provide training to young people for leading roles in agriculture, to foster young farmers and ranchers through our industry and to help build a more effective Farm Bureau to preserve our individual freedoms and expand our opportunities in agriculture.
The Young Farmers and Ranchers program offers opportunities in:
· Leader Development and Educational Conferences
· Legislative Awareness
· Networking with other farmers & ranchers across the country
· Involvement in the whole Farm Bureau Program
YF&R’s mission is to attract and empower future Farm Bureau and community leaders and increase the interest in agriculture as a way of life. Our committee is designed to facilitate professional development and social networking opportunities among young farmers, ranchersand people who work in agriculture related jobs.
