Young Farmers & Ranchers
Preparing the next generation.
The Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) are active agriculturalists between the ages of 18 and 35 involved in production, banking, business, and many other areas of the ag industry. Here are some of the benefits and ways you can participate in the Yuba-Sutter YF&R:
You have the opportunity to enjoy the social aspect and meet people who share the same challenges and successes that you do.
Young Farmers and Ranchers offers programs that give you the opportunity to become involved in the legislative process.
You will make valuable professional contacts. You have the opportunity to meet and work with your elected officials.
You will have the opportunity to attend seminars focusing on leadership training, and you will gain valuable insights into all aspects of agriculture.
California agriculture is the most diverse in the world, and as a result, public policy issues affecting our agriculture can be very complex. Farm Bureau needs young leaders like you to be involved in the legislative process. Young Farmers and Ranchers offers programs that give you that opportunity.
The Legislative Conference provides a one-day training at the State Capitol building and the opportunity to speak with legislators.

One aspect common to all Young Farmers & Ranchers activities is the opportunity to meet people. Whether you are participating on the county, state, or national level, there are others who share the same challenges and successes that you do. Social activities are where YF&Rs have fun and network at the same time!
