Members of the Vernon County Farm Bureau will hold their annual meeting on Sept. 22, at 7:30 p.m. at the Rockton Tavern in La Farge.
All Farm Bureau members are encouraged to attend this important 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 state Farm Bureau Annual Meeting in Wisconsin Dells, Dec. 6-8.
As a grassroots organization, it is Farm Bureau’s members on the county level who set the policy goals of the state’s leading farm organization. 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 forwarding resolutions on ag issues including high capacity wells, energy exports, drones, climate change and agricultural enterprise areas.
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.
