If production agriculture is your career choice, then New Century Farmer may be the program for you. Each year the National FFA Organization selects an elite group of FFA alumni between the ages of 18 and 24 to attend the all-expenses-paid New Century Farmer conference. New Century Farmer provides you with an opportunity to advance your leadership, personal and career skills. During the five-day conference, you and other future producers will learn from each other and industry experts as you discuss the topics and issues that affect today’s production agriculturists.
What You Will Experience at the New Century Farmer Conference:
- Learning from industry experts on topics that are relevant to young producers.
- Exploring diverse farm business operations.
- Getting up-close-and-personal with leaders in agriculture, communications, and business.
- Networking with a group of other extraordinary young entrepreneurs.
- Developing a vision statement for the future of your operation.
