Young Farmers and Ranchers Program

The Young Farmers and Ranchers program provides opportunities for young men and women, between the ages of 18–35, to actively participate in county and state Farm Bureau organizations, events and programs of work. As vital members of county committees, men and women in young farmer programs are given opportunities to plan and implement Arkansas agriculture programs and activities that:

  • Acquaint young members with, and increase their involvement in, Farm Bureau.
  • Develop capable rural leadership.
  • Influence public policies and provide workable solutions for issues that affect agriculture.
  • Build a network with fellow farmers, ranchers, and agricultural supporters.

The Young Farmers and Ranchers program also provides opportunities for young men and women to earn recognition for their achievements in agriculture, business and leadership through the Farm Bureau’s Young Farmers & Ranchers Awards program and competitions.
