Young ag leaders share spotlight at AFBF convention

The American Farm Bureau Federation’s national convention takes place this weekend in Atlanta, and Wisconsin Farm Bureau President Kevin Krentz says the national event is not all policy discussion.  He tells Brownfield it’s also great for training our next ag leaders. “We have a number of young farmer contestants going down there to compete both in the Discussion Meet and Excellence in Agriculture at a national level. That’s a great thing to really continue to give that experience and that leadership experience to our young members.”

Wisconsin’s Young Farmer and Agriculturalist Program is being represented by Kellie Zahn from Shawano County in the Excellence in Ag competition and Julie Wadzinski from Rice Lake in the national discussion meet.

Brownfield’s Mark Dorenkamp will be reporting from the Atlanta AFBF convention.
