Farmers and ranchers in California were recognized at the Feb. 10 American Farm Bureau Federation's Young Farmers and Ranchers Leadership Conference for their donations of more than 10 million pounds of food to the national Harvest for All program for 2012.
California came in first among other states in the donation drive for families in need.
