The South Dakota Farm Bureau is inviting all of our farm & ranch members to attend our 96th Annual Meeting, set for Nov. 22-23 in Pierre.
The theme this year is "Our Farm Bureau: Educate, Energize, Empower," and we will be focusing much attention on re-energizing the County Farm Bureau with ideas for how to ramp up involvement and attract young producers.
Visit our SDFB Annual Meeting page here to review the event agenda, register online, or find a printable registration form.
Event highlights will include the delegate session, the unveiling of SDFB's "F@ST" (First at Scene Training) video for rural accident-readiness, and specific ideas for how to involve young producers in your County Farm Bureaus.
Keynote addresses will be given by SD Attorney General Marty Jackley, nationally known farm broadcaster Tom Steever, Ross Korves of The Pro Exporter Network, and SDFB President Scott VanderWal.
Online registration has now closed, but we would still love to have you join us in Pierre! Simply register on-site once you arrive at the Ramkota.
