The Kentucky Young Farmers Association is an organization dedicated to building leadership and management skills in young farmers across the commonwealth. The organization is run by a board of officers elected annually by the membership. Leadership for Kentucky YFA is provided by Mr. Bruce Metzger or the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.
Kentucky YFA holds an annual convention each spring which includes updates on the agriculture industry, competitions, and awards in various production contests. The coveted Member of the Year Award is presented during the closing banquet of the convention.
Kentucky YFA also hosts a summer tour in July each year as well as regional awards banquets and a variety of local events. In 2014, Kentucky YFA will host the National Young Farmer Education Institute in Louisville.
