To help prepare competitors for state and national Discussion Meets, American Farm Bureau Federation will be hosting a series of conference calls this fall. Each call will last an hour and include a speaker who is an industry expert on one of the five discussion meet questions for the 2014 Young Farmers & Ranchers Discussion Meet in San Antonio, Texas, and the 2014 Young Farmers & Ranchers Collegiate Discussion Meet in Virginia Beach, Va. We have also included a sixth training call that will cover the overall competitive event, the new scoring sheet and tips for preparing for an event. There will also be ample time for questions and answers during the calls.
Any interested individuals are encouraged to join the calls for any or all dates scheduled.
