Welcome to Idaho Farm Bureau Federation The Voice of Idaho Agriculture

Young Farmers and Ranchers


District 1

Kyle & Jessica Wade
(208) 766-3209  Downey

Kyle and Jessica Wade live in Downey, Idaho.  They have a fun two-year-old little boy who they love to take horse riding, camping, boating, fishing, and hunting. 

Kyle works with his dad on the ranch where they run about 160 mother cows and farm about 700 acres of hay and grain. Kyle and Jessica are in the process of expanding their operation so that one day they will be able to take it over.  Jessica also teaches second grade at Downey Elementary.
As the District I chairs, Kyle and Jessica enjoy serving on the state committee.  They love what Farm Bureau has to offer through the Young Farmers and Ranchers program, Ag in the Classroom, and others. Being informed on policies that will affect their livelihood is a great benefit as well. If it weren't for Farm Bureau they feel they wouldn't know about these important factors.
