After a week of listening to amazing speakers, touring agricultural facilities in Iowa, and interacting with future leaders of the agricultural industry, the New Century Farmer conference came to a close. The potential of the students who attended this year’s conference was phenomenal. Fifty young agriculturalists representing twenty four states came together with the same passions and interests to plan for the future of their operations. During their time in Des Moines, the students also created a vision for their operations. Their visions encompassed how they plan to succeed in the industry as the demand for agricultural products continues to increase. The knowledge gained at the New Century Farmer conference planted a seed for all the participants, which will challenge them to grow and be successful as emerging leaders in the agricultural industry.
