Learning off the Farm

Jerry & I were given the wonderful opportunity to attend the Nebraska Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers conference this past weekend and had a wonderful time. It was great to meet and connect with other people our age who are going through the same things trying to get started in the agriculture industry.¬†Young farmers and ranchers & their spouses from across the state gathered to talk about ag issues, learn new practices and agvocate. We arrived to Kearney, NE on Friday around lunch time and after a welcome lunch set out to tour some area farms & businesses. Jerry & I toured Wolfden Dairy and the Monsanto seed company’s packaging & distribution plant. Then Saturday we attended seminars on grain marketing, cover crops and spreading the word on ag.
