Young Leaders

McHenry County Farm Bureau has taken great steps in reinvigorating our Young Leaders program. The program tackles the unique needs of men and women 18-35 years old, who have a passion for all aspects of agriculture. Program offerings include seminars, social networking, consumer outreach, educational tours, and a host of statewide opportunities.

Our Board of Directors committed $3,000 towards the program and asked others to partner with them in this investment in our agricultural youth. We offer two sponsor levels: Gold - $500 or more, and Silver - $250 or more.


We would like to thank the following:

Gold Sponsors:

McHenry County Community Foundation


Northeastern Illinois Cattlemen's Association

Silver Sponsors:

1st Farm Credit Services

Walter Seed Inc.
