Farm Bureau to hold annual meeting Sept. 8
Placeholder Image
MONROE - Members of the Green County Farm Bureau will hold its annual meeting at 7 p.m. Sept. 8 at the Ludlow Mansion Bed and Breakfast-Peppercorn Banquets.

All Farm Bureau members are encouraged to attend the meeting to help create policy resolutions and vote in elections for county board directors. Also being selected will be the county's voting delegates for the WFBF annual meeting Dec. 5 through 7 in Wisconsin Dells.

Farm Bureau's members on the county level set the policy goals. The Wisconsin Farm Bureau is often asked to get involved in issues affecting production agriculture and rural Wisconsin, both in Madison and Washington, D.C.

This fall, Farm Bureau members across the state will be crafting, discussing and forwarding policy recommendations on emerging ag issues including transportation funding, third-party audits of farming practices, farmer-led water quality efforts and point source-nonpoint source pollution abatement collaboration.

Made up of 61 county Farm Bureaus, the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is the state's largest general farm organization representing farms of every size, commodity and management style.
