Tell Your Farm's Story

I just returned home from Leadership Conference at the Sanford Convention Center in Bemidji, held annually by the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) Promotion & Education and Young Farmers & Ranchers Committees. Nearly 225 people from around the state were in attendance, and the weather cooperated nicely for both tours and travel. I encourage everyone to mark January 26 and 27 in your calendar for next year’s conference in Red Wing. Your county may be able to help fund your trip. Just ask - you won’t be disappointed and it will help motivate you to accomplish personal goals.
