The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation announced a number of scholarship opportunities for young farmers and ranchers in Minnesota.
With a grant from the Minnesota Corn Growers Association, the MFBF is offering 100 $100 scholarships to the upcoming YF&R Conference in January. The remaining $5,000 will be used for 20 $250 scholarships to the AFBF Conference in Oklahoma in February.
These conferences are important for the future of the agriculture industry, keeping the youth and young farmers interested in pursuing a career.
â€œThe main focus of the Farm Bureau’s Young Farmers & Ranchers program is to provide opportunities to develop leadership skills,â€ said MFB President Kevin Paap. â€œThank you to the Minnesota Corn Growers Association for their investment in this program. The monies will assist more young farmers to participate and to gain valuable experience.â€
