The policies of Farm Bureau are the backbone of the organization. They provide the framework through which we advocate for family, community and food security. Each county Farm Bureau sets policy annually. They help guide efforts to address real community issues—issues such as regulations, funding public education and services, environmental protection, animal care, health care, landowner’s rights and community planning. This policy helps set the agenda of the program and advocacy efforts of the organization at the state and federal level, but just as importantly are used to help guide the yearly plan of work for Crawford County Farm Bureau volunteers.

On June 17, local/state elected officials as well as other community leaders have been asked to provide input on the issues and policies that they think need attention in our community. But we'd like your input on the issues as well. Please take the time to fill out this form today. Farm Bureau is a grassroots organization, and without your involvement, the vitality of the organization suffers. Your ideas and participation will help create better policies and programs to not only improve the organization, but our community as well. 

By the end of July, the Farm Bureau policy development committee will take the input received by you and other local leaders and pen the policy resolutions which will be voted on by the membership at our annual meeting. Those approved will go on to the State and then move on to the American Farm Bureau Federation. 

Fundamentally Farm Bureau is all about security--family security, community security and food security.  What issues do you think should be focused on to achieve security in these areas? Please take 10 minutes to share your thoughts and concerns here. Be engaged and help improve our community.

Regards,

Tim Hicks
