Polaris Sponsors Young Farmers and Ranchers competition

Polaris Sponsors Young Farmers and Ranchers competition

The Montana Farm Bureau Young Farmer and Rancher Committee is thrilled that for the fifth year, Montana Polaris is the sponsor of the YF&R Discussion Meet, awarding a Ranger® Side by Side UTV to the winner of that competition.  The Discussion Meet, which is open to Farm Bureau members age 18-35, is meant to simulate a committee meeting with ideas discussed and solutions developed. The MFBF YF&R Discussion Meet will take place Tuesday, November 12 during the MFBF Annual Convention in Billings. 

“We’re very excited that many of the Montana Polaris dealers have opted to donate a Ranger again to the winner of our Young Farmer and Rancher Discussion Meet,” said YF&R Chair Gil Gasper, who won the Discussion Meet—and a Ranger—in 2016. “It’s local money from the dealerships going to support this statewide event as well as supporting their local farmers and ranchers. It’s been a great partnership. With all of the excitement generated during our centennial year, we look forward to having many young farmers and ranchers participate in this event.”

Cali Rooney, winner of the 2018 Discussion Meet, is thrilled with her Polaris Ranger. “The Polaris Ranger that I was so fortunate to win has been used every day for fencing, moving cows and putting out salt and mineral. We love it and are so thankful for the generosity of the Montana Polaris dealers.” 

Not only will the winner of the Montana Discussion Meet receive a Polaris, but an expense-paid trip to compete in the national YF&R Discussion Meet in January in Austin, TX. 

Thanks to these participating Polaris dealers for supporting our Young Farmers and Ranchers: 

Be sure to stop by their dealerships to say thank you for supporting the Montana Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers, and check out their inventory.
