National Young Farmer Educational Association - The Association for Educating Agricultural Leaders works to answer the question "Where will we find the next generation of agricultural producers and young ag leaders?"
NYFEA invites you to join us at the 56th Annual Institute in New Orleans
Since 1966 the NYFEA has hosted Institutes from one corner of the United States to another. Young farmers from many different states have experienced the blessings of agriculture from livestock to row crops to horticulture to agribusiness. It has been a unique learning experience. Today's Institute allows for experiential learning and leadership training to occur under the same umbrella. To the many people that have made this a part of their regular routine, Thank You! To the people that are willing to try this for the first time, you are welcome!
