49TH ANNUAL STATE INSTITUTE
JANUARY 25 – 28, 2018
The Colorado Young Farmers Educational Association’s 2018 State Institute is two weeks away—to be held January 25 – 28, 2018 at the beautiful Omni Interlocken Hotel, in Broomfield.
This annual gathering of the young and young-at-heart, beginning and established farmers, educators and other agricultural enthusiasts, will kick off immediately following the upcoming 2018 Colorado Farm Show. Greeley’s annual CO Farm Show has designated January 25th as “Ag Education Day” and the CYFEA will begin their 2018 annual Institute that evening at Omni Hotel and Resort.
This year’s conference will include several fun events, as well as a Trade Show, a Coors Brewery tour, and a Roaring 20’s theme party on Friday night. Saturday’s Leadership Luncheon includes a panel discussion on current Farm Bill issues with members of the Colorado Farm Bureau, Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, Colorado Corn, Colorado Wheat, and the Colorado Livestock Association. Leland Swenson, Senior Advisor on Colorado Rural Policy for CO Senator Michael Bennett, will act as the forum moderator.
The annual Banquet Dinner on Saturday night is being sponsored by the 2018 CO Farm Show, with special guest Greg Peterson, of the “Peterson Farm Brothers”, as the evening’s entertainment, who is solely being sponsored by 21st Century Equipment from Sterling, CO. Other sponsors for this year’s meeting are: Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, CO Beef Council, Colorado Corn, American AgCredit, Quality Well & Pump, Schaeffer Oil, 4Rivers Equipment, Gordon Insurance Agency, and Gordon Real Estate.
A full program agenda, along with the meeting’s registration form, is available on the CYFEA website, at: www.cyfea.org
The mission of the Colorado Young Farmers Educational Association is to provide support and resources for its local chapters in order to develop and strengthen their education, leadership, and agricultural advocacy. The organization provides opportunities for its membership to grow, personally and professionally, beyond their local chapters and area communities.
