The OFBF Agriculture for Good Government Political Action Committee designates “Friends of Agriculture.” In order to make that designation, the committee works with county Farm Bureaus.

For selecting federal candidates, both American Farm Bureau and Ohio Farm Bureau have a process to determine candidates who have demonstrated support for agriculture. Only one candidate in each race may receive this designation, to which two factors are used to determine. One is an evaluation conducted by each county in the congressional district. Local Farm Bureau leaders provide input on the representative’s level of engagement, as well as his or her responsiveness to agricultural and business issues. The second factor used is the legislator’s voting record on American Farm Bureau’s key issues. Votes that were considered included Farm Bureau priorities on tax reform, regulatory reform, farm policy and waterways.

The 2018 U.S Congressional Friend of Agriculture for District 14 goes to Congressman David Joyce.  Thank you Congressman for your continued support of agriculture.

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.

Farm Bureau is an incredible organization that has given me countless professional development opportunities in addition to advocating for all sizes and types of farmers.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.

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.
