The purpose of the Georgia Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers program is to bring together young adults that are involved or interested in the agriculture industry while promoting leadership growth, educational outreach, diversity, and industry advocacy in our communities, state and nation. In addition, the program will contribute to the overall effectiveness of the Georgia Farm Bureau by providing leadership, educational, and social opportunities, thereby preparing and enabling young adults to become more active members and to assume additional roles of leadership and responsibility within county, state or national Farm Bureau organizations. State winners in these contests compete against their peers from other states in the American Farm Bureau national competitions. Learn more about our competitive events. Visit the Webpage.
