On the Local Level Winter 2010
NORTH CAROLINA FARM BUREAU’S COLLEGIATE YOUNG FARMERS & RANCHERS PROGRAM was established at North Carolina State University during the fall of 2009. NCSU students expressed an interest in establishing the first collegiate division of NCFB’s YF&R program to study agricultural leadership. The program has about 35 members, 11 of which serve on the governing committee. In early meetings, the group discussed directing its efforts toward Ag Awareness Days on campus and coordinating displays and programs on the topic of “Misconceptions of Agriculture.” The Collegiate YF&R program holds meetings on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month in Room 106 in Scott Hall.
