Farm Bureau members lobby government officials to create laws and regulations that benefit farms and rural communities.
They do this by advocating for Farm Bureau policy (collective belief statements and public policy positions adopted by members on a yearly basis). Members surface and discuss new ideas for Farm Bureau policy through a year-long, grassroots process .
Get involved! Help surface new ideas for Farm Bureau policy, learn about the issues other members are discussing, and read Farm Bureau’s current state and national policy positions.
