YOUNG FARMER & RANCHER NEWS

YF&R Achievement Award deadline near

6/11/2013 at 12:00 a.m.


Applications for the 2013 Young Farmers & Ranchers Achievement Award Contest are due by July 15. 

The Achievement Award recognizes Arkansas farmers and ranchers, between the ages of 18 and 35, who have excelled in their agricultural operations and exhibited outstanding leadership abilities. Competitors must be Farm Bureau members, involved in production agriculture full-time, with a majority of their income subject to normal risks. They will be judged on a combination of:
  • farming operation growth and financial progress;
  • leadership within and outside Farm Bureau; 
  • excellence in operation management and scope; and
  • self-initiative displayed throughout the development of their operation.
Three finalists will be announced July 22 at Arkansas Farm Bureau’s Officers & Leaders Conference in Hot Springs. The winner will be announced in December, at the organization’s annual meeting in Little Rock.

The winner will receive a $35,000 GM gift card, which can be used toward the purchase of any GM vehicle at Stanley Wood Chevrolet in Batesville.

Applications are here. For more information, contact Harry Willems at 501-228-1247.
