I was excited to hear a fellow southwest Missouri girl was elected as the 2017 chairperson of the American Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee during the AFBF annual meeting in Phoenix this week. Kalena Bruce will take over as chair in February, at the end of the committee’s leadership conference, will serve a one year term and will also serve on the AFBF board of directors.
Kalena farms with her husband, Billy, and two-year-old daughter, Willa Grace. They have a commercial cow-calf operation and an agri-tourism venture where they grow strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries and have a pumpkin patch and corn maze in the fall.
Cindy sat down with Kalena at at AFBF convention to learn get to know her a little better. Interview with Kalena Bruce, 2017 AFBF YF&R Chair
