Collegiate Farm Bureau

SDSU Collegiate Farm Bureau is an affiliate of the South Dakota Farm Bureau located on the campus of South Dakota State University in Brookings. This Collegiate Farm Bureau is a great opportunity for SDSU students from agricultural backgrounds or majoring in agriculture-related fields to gain leadership skills and network with agriculture professionals.

Discussion Meet

The Collegiate Discussion Meet is a public-speaking contest where participants discuss timely agricultural topics in a panel-discussion format with active participation being expected from each participant. The competition is evaluated on an exchange of ideas and information on a pre-determined topic. The judges are looking for the contestant that offers constructive criticism, cooperation, and communication while analyzing agricultural problems and developing solutions.

The SDSU Collegiate Group recently participated in the SDSU Little I
