2024 Young Farmer Conference

Join us for the 2024 Young Farmer Conference taking place on Friday, February 2 and Saturday, February 3 at the Prairie Meadows Events & Conference Center in Altoona, Iowa.
This conference is a great opportunity to reconnect with friends and peers, make new connections, network and learn from professionals in the agriculture industry – while still having a bit of fun too! 

Elaine Forese, our first of two keynote speakers, is known as Canada’s farm whisperer. She is a go-to-expert for farm families who want better communication and conflict resolution during the farm transition process by bringing clarity along with workable and practical tools to help families get started on those tough conversations. We’ll lighten things up a bit with our second keynote speaker, Tim Gabrielson. An entertainer at heart, Tim is his brand and the foundation of his talks is called just that, TIM: Temporarily Interrupting Mindsets.  While easy to remember (because it’s his name after all), Tim teaches a simple system for self-transformation and a positive perspective that starts with one thing – fun! 

While at the conference, you’ll also have an opportunity to learn about cutting-edge technologies, new ag opportunities, sustainability practices and financial management techniques to help you grow and succeed on your farm through a variety of breakout sessions.
The Young Farmer Discussion Meet competition (sponsored by Growmark and Grainger) will take place on Saturday, February 3. Learn more below.
