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.

Louis and Cyril Keller are the inventors of the Bobcat skid-steer loader and were selected as 2023 inductees into the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

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.
