Created: 1/20/11 (Thu) | Topic: Events
The North Dakota Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers Leadership Conference gets underway on Friday and promises to be an educational and fun experience for everyone who attends.
The theme for the conference this year is "Our Future, Your Legacy" and features a talk by former North Dakota Governor and United State Department of Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer, as well as two talks by Dr. Ron Hanson of the University of Nebraska.
In addition, the Youth Leadership Conference, for students in grades 6-8, will be held at the same time, in the same location. The YLC is an opportunity for young people to develop their leadership skills and learn about careers related to agriculture.
We will have highlights from both event posted on the site next week.
