More than 400 farmers and ranchers between the ages of 18 and 35 will gather next month in Wichita to network, learn and help position themselves as leaders in agriculture and rural Kansas.
This year's Young Farmers and Ranchers conference theme is "Farming Beyond Your Field." It will be Jan 28-20 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
The KFB Young Farmers & Ranchers program is designed to develop the next generation of agriculture leaders. The Leaders Conference will be heavy on opportunities for young farmers and ranchers to influence farm policy and public opinion through involvement and participation in Farm Bureau.
