Published on: May 19, 2009

The American Farm Bureau Federation has selected a group of 10 young agricultural leaders to participate in the fifth class of the Partners in Agricultural Leadership honors program. The PAL program provides young farmers and ranchers with the opportunity to hone their leadership skills after they have served as AFBF Young Farmer & Rancher Committee members/officers or participated in competitive YF&R events.

AFBF President Bob Stallman was quick to point out that each of the previous PAL classes has been an outstanding success and says he is confident this one also will prove to be a stellar experience for participants.

By participating in PAL, the young leaders will enrich their skills in problem solving, persuasion and consensus building. At the same time, they will be deepening their knowledge of specific agricultural and public policy issues.
