Young Farmers & Ranchers Discussion Meet

The Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation Discussion Meet competitive event is designed to simulate a committee meeting where discussion and active participation are expected from each participant. This competition is evaluated on an exchange of ideas and information on a pre-determined topic. Participants build basic discussion skills, develop a keen understanding of important agricultural issues and explore how groups can pool knowledge to reach consensus and solve problems. Successful participants are productive thinkers rather than emotional persuaders and assist the group in creating ways to implement the solutions discussed and highlight Farm Bureau’s involvement in those actions/steps.

The Nebraska Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers 2013 Discussion Meet winner will receive $500, an iPad and an all expenses paid trip to the AFBF Annual Meeting to compete at the national competition in San Antonio, Texas.
