I spent three days this week with at the AgriFutures Conference, held in Kearney, Nebraska. Myself, along with persons from the Wyoming Department of Ag and the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture (NCTA) had been planning this event for several months. In attendance were college students, producers, and industry representatives from Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Kansas, and Canada! We had some great speakers and networking opportunities.
Before we adjourned on the last day we went around the room and shared “take away messages” from our time together. I think that many of the take away messages from the conference apply not only to agriculture, but to life in general.
The list I am sharing with you today is one generated by these agriculture enthusiasts and leaders – the people who grow and raise the food we all eat. And boy let me tell you, they are excited about the future of agriculture (hence AgriFuture)!
I know there are a few things on this list I could be better at, and I will continue to work on those things. Are there things on the list you are working on? What is missing from the list?

This was a great conference to attend and participate in as a presenter! The discussion was rich and I learned a great deal regarding issues faced in other states. Here’s a great list of take-away points from Dr. Lindsay Chichester, UNL Extension Educator.
Thanks Jenny, we were so glad you could join us!
