AFBF Excellence in Agriculture

The American Farm Bureau Federation Excellence in Agriculture Award Program is designed as an opportunity for Young Farmers & Ranchers, while actively contributing and growing through their involvement in Farm Bureau and agriculture, to earn recognition. Participants are judged on their involvement in agriculture, leadership ability, involvement and participation in Farm Bureau and other organizations. More information about the Excellence in Agriculture Award and the event application are below.

Four award winners were chosen for the 2015 AFBF YF&R Excellence in Agriculture award. The winner received their choice of either a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado or a 2015 GMC Sierra. Three finalists each received $2,500 cash and $500 in STIHL merchandise and a Case IH Farmall 45A tractor. Special thanks to our sponsors, General Motors, Case IH, and STIHL, for their continued support of the American Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers Excellence in Agriculture award.
