Young Farmers & Ranchers
The OFB’s Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) program is open to ag producers aged 16 to 35.

> Make friends and contacts with peers who share the same interests from around the state.
> Travel around Oregon and the U.S. for Farm Bureau conferences, workshops, and tours.
> Compete and test your skills in the state and national Discussion Meet, Achievement Award, and Excellent in Agriculture competition.
