The Montana Farm Bureau Young Farmer & Rancher (YF&R) Committee announced that for the eighth consecutive year, Montana Polaris is the sponsor of the Young Farmer & Rancher Discussion Meet, awarding a Ranger® Side by Side UTV to the winner of the competition. The Discussion Meet will be held on November 15 during the Montana Farm Bureau Annual Convention in Missoula.

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.

“We are honored to have Polaris and our Montana Polaris Dealers sponsoring our young farmers and ranchers again this year by donating a Ranger 500 for our 2022 Discussion Meet winner,” said MFBF YF&R Chair J.M. Peck. 

Peck, who won the 2021 Discussion Meet, said, “After six months and 3000 miles I can attest that the Polaris Ranger is a tough and hard-working machine. It is a generous prize for Montana Polaris Dealers to donate in support of our young farmers and ranchers. I know it has helped me get a lot of work done on the ranch. I encourage young farmers and ranchers to participate in the 2022 Discussion Meet.”

Not only will the winner of the Montana YF&R Discussion Meet receive a Polaris Ranger 500, but they will receive an expense-paid trip to participate in the national Discussion Meet in January 2023 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
