The Farm Bureau holds the contest to help discover new and helpful inventions, equipment modifications, innovative crops, marketing techniques, management systems and farming practices developed by farmers and ranchers. It gets Farm Bureau farmer and rancher members together to share their innovative ideas and help other farmers and ranchers find new ways to help their farming ventures from cutting costs to improving efficiency.

The American Farm Bureau Federation sponsors the Farmer Idea Exchange Contest.

Up to 15 ideas from around the country will be selected to display their winning idea as part of the 2008 AFBF Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana, January 13-14, 2008. This is an informal presentation of the innovations and practices that farmers have developed and used. The winners selected will receive up to $1,500 toward expenses incurred to participate in the AFBF showcase.
