The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) Young Farmers and Ranchers (YF&R) Committee held the preliminary rounds of the Discussion Meet at the MFBF Leadership Conference at the Hilton Airport Hotel in Bloomington on January 23.

The eight semi-finalists are: Abbey Weninger from Wright County, Katie Schmitt from Benton County, Corey Ramsden from Washington-Ramsey County, Jonathon Guentzel from Le Sueur County, Joe Sullivan from Renville County, Jamison Schneckloth from Mower County, Jared Luhman from Goodhue County and Carl Sackreiter from Winona County.
