A new Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) Committee was appointed by Nevada Farm Bureau President Hank Combs during the 2013 Nevada Farm Bureau Annual Convention.

Anna-Lisa Giannini of Fallon was appointed to serve as the YF&R Committee Chair. In addition to serving as the committee chair, Anna-Lisa will also serve on the Nevada Farm Bureau Board of Directors.

“It is an honor to serve Nevada Farm Bureau as the chairperson of the Young Farmers and Ranchers program,” Giannini said. “As young producers involved in Farm Bureau, not only do we have the chance to learn from each other and our wiser counterparts, but we also have a unique opportunity to share our stories with Nevada’s legislature as the future of the Silver State. In the coming year I hope the program will grow and become an active voice for the future of Nevada.”

Kaluna Aki of Logandale, Lacey Sproul of Logandale, and Dann Mathews of Pioche were appointed to serve on the state YF&R Committee.

The YF&R Committee will provide Farm Bureau members between the ages of 18 and 35 the opportunity to network across all levels of the organization in promoting and preserving industry values, resolving challenges, growing through action and leading through service by supporting Nevada Farm Bureau’s mission, purpose, programs, events and activities. Through these avenues, YF&R members can advance in the personal development of leadership capabilities and further the organization using advocacy, education and fellowship far into the future.
