Members of the Kewaunee County Farm Bureau will hold their annual meeting starting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 11, at 7:30 p.m. at JW’s Place, N5685 County Road E, Slovan.
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 Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation annual meeting Dec. 2-4 in Wisconsin Dells.
As a grassroots organization, Farm Bureau members on the county level 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 crafting, discussing and forwarding policy recommendations on emerging agricultural issues including water quality, labeling and marketing of agricultural products and the 2018 Farm Bill.
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.
