Brown makes "Sweet 16"

Created: 1/09/17 (Mon) | Topic: Leadership

The American Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmer and Rancher Discussion Meet was held during the AFBF Convention in Phoenix, Arizona. Rocky Brown of Wishek represented North Dakota and advanced as far as the "Sweet 16" round. Red River Farm Network's Don Wick interviewed Brown about his experience.

"It has been an exciting adventure learning how to discuss and learn about really important topics in agriculture that I probably wouldn't have dove so deeply into without a competition like this," Brown told RRFN. In the Discussion Meet, contestants addressed everything from GMO’s and food labeling to the protection of private data. "These were very challenging topics," he said.

We congratulate Rocky on representing NDFB so admirably!
