Texas Farm Bureau's FarmLead Program

 

Take the next step in agriculture. Be a leader. Grow through action. And leave a lasting legacy. Texas Farm Bureau’s AgLead-FarmLead program does just that.

Previous classes of AgLead and FarmLead were separate programs for two different age brackets. Beginning in 2018, the two programs have been combined into one AgLead–FarmLead class. Trips, learning sessions and leadership activities for both age groups will be completed together.

Overview

Advocacy, leadership development, networking and tackling current issues. It’s a small part of the agricultural way of life. One that farmers and ranchers—like you—can take advantage of through this program.

It’s a rewarding experience. And it pays dividends for you and for Texas agriculture.
