The Excellence in Agriculture Award is designed as an opportunity for Young Farmers & Ranchers between the ages of 18 and 35 who do not derive the majority of their income from an owned, rented or leased agricultural operation, while actively contributing and growing through their involvement in Farm Bureau and agriculture, to earn recognition.  Participants will be judged on their involvement in agriculture, leadership ability, involvement and participation in Farm Bureau and other organizations (i.e., civic, service and community). Applicant(s) must be a Farm Bureau member or Farm Bureau member family.
