Young producers will get a look at North Central Texas agriculture through the 2021 Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) Young Farmer & Rancher (YF&R) Fall Tour. It’s an opportunity for farmers and ranchers between the ages of 18-35 to meet with fellow producers and learn about other agricultural perspectives.
This year’s tour is set for Sept. 10-12 in Granbury and will focus on livestock and dairy production, along with hydroponics and the growing urban population’s effect on agriculture.
“The tour is an opportunity to help young farmers and ranchers strengthen relationships, form new friendships and learn from other producers across the state.

We’ll hear from farmers and ranchers on how they’ve adapted to the changing landscape to stay in production agriculture.”
