North Dakota Farm Bureau Farm and Ranch Conference scheduled
The event will be in Bismarck.
BISMARCK — North Dakota Farm Bureau is gearing up for the Farm and Ranch Conference on Jan. 27-28 in Bismarck at the Bismarck Hotel and Convention Center.
The conference will begin Friday evening, featuring Braxten Nielsen. In 2017, Braxten’s life changed forever. He attended a rodeo just like any other day, except that day left him with a 5 percent chance to ever walk again.
The conference is open to anyone who is looking to grow as a leader, ignite their passion for agriculture and have some fun while doing it.
Saturday will offer several breakout sessions. The topics provide an opportunity for education in a variety of agricultural areas, including:
- Maintaining your land in a drought
- Market Outlook
- Erica Valdez - rancher by the U.S./Mexican border
- Meat Cutting
- Technology in Ranching
- Ag in Politics
- Power Hours - Wild Goose Chase
The Young Farmer and Rancher Discussion Meet will be held on Saturday. The discussion meet gives contestants a chance to show their leadership skills during a competitive event that simulates a committee meeting where discussion and active participation are expected. The winner will receive a cash prize of $4,000 and compete in the national Discussion Meet at the 2024 American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
