The YF&R Conference is family friendly!

Colorado Farm Bureau will host the Annual Young Farmer & Rancher Conference, January 29 & 30 2010.  The event will be held at the Colorado Farm Bureau Center in Centennial. The event is open to anyone age 18-35.

“The YF&R Conference is an opportunity for young farmers and ranchers to gather and discuss issues that are important to rural families in Colorado, gain leadership skills and find out about the Farm Bureau organization” said T.J. Dice, Colorado Farm Bureau Young Farmer & Rancher Chairman.

Highlights of the conference will include tours of the Safeway Distribution Center, workshops and educational sessions geared toward young farmers and ranchers.
