2020 Young Farmers Conference

Please join us January 31 - February 2 in Omaha, NE

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

As a cooperative, we are committed to the success of our growers. Our goal is to create an environment where our young farmers are provided with the tools they need to build a strategy that brings them success. In current economic times, we must remain competitive, be passionate about our work, persevere and overcome all obstacles. We will meet the challenges ahead and rise above the competition to build our strategy together. We invite you to join us for the Young Farmers Conference.

We want to give you the very best to keep growing and developing at a personal and professional level, so please register by January 13th for a special weekend getaway to enjoy good food, good fellowship and have some fun!

  • Experience the historic Old Market area in luxurious accommodations at the Marriot in downtown Omaha, Nebraska.
  • Listen to prominent speakers share valuable insights to benefit your farm operation.
  • Develop new relationships with other farm families that share a common purpose.

A small registration fee of $75.00 will be charged. CVA will cover all other costs for the conference (rooms, meals, etc.).
