Young Farmer and Rancher Leadership Conference
YF and R Leadership Conference Underway in Pocatello
Pocatello--Young Farmers and Ranchers started arriving in Pocatello Thursday morning from every corner of the state.
Drew Brammer and wife Markita flew in from Moscow via Salt Lake while others like Chris and Kimmel Dalley took the 25 minute drive from Blackfoot.
Last night 115 members boarded a bus with a secret destination as part of the annual Icebreaker. "They didn't know where we were taking them, but once we got there everyone had a good time," said Chris Dalley. The bus pulled up to the Deleta Skating rink on Yellowstone Avenue. The young families got off the bus and then had dinner that featured everything from pizza to burritos. It was the first extravaganza that put wheels on the feet of YF and R members.
"The icebreaker was a good time, it gave us a chance to talk to everyone and renew friendships," said Dalley. There were bumps and bruises but everyone left with a big smile on their face.
