We'd like to recognize and congratulate Cal Epsilon Brother, Tim Truax, for being named the 2018 American Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmers and Ranchers Collegiate Discussion Meet National Winner!
Tim, along with multiple other contestants, competed in Reno, Nevada this past weekend! Check out the Facebook links below for behind the scenes happenings, including the final four collegiate discussion meet. The final four topic was, “With a growing demand for US farm products abroad, how can agriculture overcome the public skepticism of foreign trade to negotiate new trade agreements and open new world markets?”
The Young Farmers and Ranchers program seeks to provide leadership in building a more effective Farm Bureau to preserve our individual freedoms and expand our opportunities in agriculture.
