BOZEMAN--The Montana Farm Bureau Young Farmer & Rancher (YF&R) Committee announced that for the tenth consecutive year, Montana Polaris is the sponsor of the Young Farmer & Rancher Discussion Meet, awarding a Ranger® 570 Side by Side to the winner of the competition. The Discussion Meet will be held November 19 during the Montana Farm Bureau Annual Convention in Billings.

The Discussion Meet contest is designed to simulate a committee meeting where discussion and active participation are expected from each participant. This competition is evaluated on an exchange of ideas and information on a pre-determined topic and is an excellent way for young people to learn more about agricultural issues.

“I am amazed by the willingness of the Montana Polaris dealers to support our young farmers and ranchers for an entire decade,” said MFBF YF&R Chair Nick Courville. “It shows a real commitment by these Polaris dealers in supporting young people with a keen interest in agriculture. A side-by-side is a fantastic incentive for our younger members to stay current on events and be able to discuss those topics with other competitors.”

Polaris District Retail Manager Kyle Hoover noted, “Polaris and the supporting Montana Polaris Dealers are proud to be sponsors of the YF&R program for an entire decade now. Teaming up with the Farm Bureau has been a great initiative to pair Polaris dealers with the hard-working Montana farming and ranching community. Thanks for the partnership and we are looking forward to another 10 years.”

Not only will the winner of the Montana YF&R Discussion Meet receive a Polaris Ranger 570, but they will receive an expense-paid trip to participate in the national Discussion Meet in January 2025 in San Antonio, Texas.
