Colorado Farm Bureau will host the Annual Young Farmer & Rancher Conference, Jan. 30 to Feb. 1. The event will be held at the Holiday Inn Express in Cortez. The event is open to anyone age 18 to 35.
"The YF&R Conference is an opportunity for young farmers and ranchers to gather and discuss issues that are important to rural families in Colorado, gain leadership skills and find out about the Farm Bureau organization," said T.J. Dice, Colorado Farm Bureau Young Farmer & Rancher Chairman.
Highlights of the conference will include tours of San Juan Bioenergy, and Adobe Milling. Additionally, workshops focused on educational sessions geared toward young farmers and ranchers will be held throughout the conference. Attendees will have a chance to win products from Grainger.
Conference room rates are $99 plus tax. Hotel reservations can be made by calling 1-800-626-5256. Many county Farm Bureaus are willing to assist their local young farmers and ranchers with expenses for attending this conference; more information is available by contacting Dana Thompson, Colorado Farm Bureau Young Farmer & Rancher Coordinator.
