KFB’s Discussion Meet tests entrants on their basic knowledge of critical farm issues and their ability to respond in a panel-type discussion.

The finals of the 2021 Discussion Meet will take place at the 102nd Kentucky Farm Bureau Annual Meeting in December in Louisville. The winner of the competition will receive a utility task vehicle courtesy of Southern Farm Bureau Life and Jacobi Sales in addition to other prizes.  The winner will go on to represent Kentucky in the national competition at the 2022 American Farm Bureau convention in January in Atlanta and will be vying a new Ford truck.
