Miami County Proposed Policies for 2018-2019:

Local

  • We oppose policy from regional planning commissions that dictate or determine action that doesn’t consider the ag community.
  • We support more research and consideration for the consequences of development that obstructs natural flow of water. EX) What development impacts are going to be made on hydrologic stuff
  • We support equal regulations of application of fertilizer applied by residential
  • We oppose rules that will attempt to regulate both manure and commercial fertilizer.
  •  We support better access to rural internet
  • We support programs that educate the urban population about agriculture.

State

  • We support dairy product labeling that is fact based to reflect accurate origin; almond milk/description of the product gives the consumer a false precise. Ex. Almond milk is not a dairy product
  • We oppose rules that will attempt to regulate both manure and commercial fertilizer.
  •  We support equal regulations of application of fertilizer applied by residential

National

  • We support dairy product labeling that is fact based to reflect accurate origin; almond milk/description of the product gives the consumer a false precise. Ex. Almond milk is not a dairy product
  • We support dairy protection as part of the Farm Bill.

As a member of Farm Bureau, I am glad that this organization takes action when necessary to protect and advance agriculture.

If you have issues with local planning or have legal questions, someone at the Farm Bureau has the answer for you, or they’ll connect you with someone who does.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.
