2011 IFBF Young Farmer Conference set for Jan. 28-29 in Des Moines

T

he Iowa Farm Bureau Federation (IFBF) Young Farmer Conference, scheduled for Jan. 28-29 in Des Moines, is all about getting together, sharing experiences and making new friends. Just ask Randy Wuebker, this year’s chair of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmer Advisory Committee. “The camaraderie at the Young Farmer meeting is great,” Wuebker said. “And the WUEBKER connections we have made over the years from the meeting have been great.” Wuebker, a Union County farmer, said the Young Farmer Conference was one of the first Farm Bureau events that he and his wife, Emily, ever attended. “And I still think its very valuable,” he said. “It’s very good to see people from all over the state and learn about their operations and experiences.” This year’s meeting will be held at the Holiday Inn Northwest in Des Moines. The conference will feature speakers and seminars to help young farmers

build the skills necessary to address the variety of challenges facing today’s farmers.

Exciting program

The theme of this year’s conference is: It’s a jungle out there—blazing new trails for agriculture! Jolene Brown, a well-known motivational speaker based in eastern Iowa, will look at the characteristics agricultural trailblazers use to overcome those challenges. In addition, Brown will discuss the potential pitfalls families can avoid to keep a family farm viable. Participants in the IFBF Young Farmer Conference will also hear David Kohl, a professor emeritus at Virginia Tech and a regular contributor to Corn and Soybean Digest. He will discuss how young farmers can position themselves to be competitive in the global marketplace for the long run. In addition to speakers and ed-

ucational seminars, participants will be able to enter the 2011 IFBF Discussion Meet. The top eight winners at the Young Farmer Conference will advance to the state finals at the IFBF 2011 annual meeting in December and will compete for Iowa’s spot in the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) Discussion meet to be held at the 2012 AFBF annual meeting in Hawaii. The IFBF Young Farmer Conference is open to all young farmers who are members of their county Farm Bureau. The cost is $110 per couple and $55 for singles. Interested young farmers should contact their county Farm Bureau for registration forms and hotel information. Childcare will be available for those members who pre-register for the conference. For more information contact your county Farm Bureau or Jenelle Rosine at (515) 225-5512 or jrosine@ifbf.org.

Keeping fitness simple

T

make every day add up over time. If beginning to live a healthier life seems overwhelming, take baby steps. One thing at a time. While it’s important to not lose sight of the big picture, setting small, achievable goals every day is the key to long term success. Instead of saying, “I have 50 pounds to lose,” say, “Today, I am going to pack my lunch and take it to work with me instead of eating out.” It’s never too late to start down the path to a healthier you. We all need to start somewhere, and there will never be the perfect time. It’s up to you to make yourself a priority and start this minute. You deserve it.

SUBMITTED BY MADISON here’s no time like the present! How many times have you told yourself, “I’ll start eating right and exercising ... tomorrow.” Honestly, how often do you really start eating right and exercising when you wake-up the next morning? Do you even remember making that commitment to yourself? If change is what you are after, don’t wait until tomorrow; don’t even wait until this afternoon. Start this minute. What will your next choice be? Will you choose to watch another 30 minutes of TV, or will you get up and move? All of those little choices that you

T

he Iowa Farm Bureau Federation (IFBF) Young Farmer Conference, scheduled for Jan. 28-29 in Des Moines, is all about getting together, sharing experiences and making new friends. Just ask Randy Wuebker, this year’s chair of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmer Advisory Committee. “The camaraderie at the Young Farmer meeting is great,” Wuebker said. “And the Wuebker connections we have made over the years from the meeting have been great.” Wuebker, a Union County farmer, said the Young Farmer Conference was one of the first Farm Bureau events that he and his wife, Emily, ever attended. “And I still think its very valuable,” he said. “It’s very good to see people from all over the state and learn about their operations and experiences.” This year’s meeting will be held at the Holiday Inn Northwest in Des Moines. The conference will feature speakers and seminars

to help young farmers build the skills necessary to address the variety of challenges facing today’s farmers.

Exciting program

The theme of this year’s conference is: It’s a jungle out there—blazing new trails for agriculture! Jolene Brown, a well-known motivational speaker based in eastern Iowa, will look at the characteristics agricultural trailblazers use to overcome those challenges. In addition, Brown will discuss the potential pitfalls families can avoid to keep a family farm viable. Participants in the IFBF Young Farmer Conference will also hear David Kohl, a professor emeritus at Virginia Tech and a regular contributor to Corn and Soybean Digest. He will discuss how young farmers can position themselves to be competitive in the global marketplace for the long run.

In addition to speakers and educational seminars, participants will be able to enter the 2011 IFBF Discussion Meet. The top eight winners at the Young Farmer Conference will advance to the state finals at the IFBF 2011 annual meeting in December and will compete for Iowa’s spot in the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) Discussion meet to be held at the 2012 AFBF annual meeting in Hawaii. The IFBF Young Farmer Conference is open to all young farmers who are members of their county Farm Bureau. The cost is $110 per couple and $55 for singles. Interested young farmers should contact their county Farm Bureau for registration forms and hotel information. Childcare will be available for those members who pre-register for the conference. For more information contact your county Farm Bureau or Jenelle Rosine at (515) 225-5512 or jrosine@ifbf.org.
