Policy Development

Policy Development

Farm Bureau's renowned grassroots-policy development process starts with individual Farm Bureau members who are concerned about an issue.

Policy Development is a fundamental, primary purpose of Farm Bureau.  Farm Bureau members recognize they are citizens first, then Farm Bureau members.  Participating in the Farm Bureau policy development process is a proven, tested exercise that produces sound policy, educated Farm Bureau members and improved, trusted relationships with a variety of stakeholders, including local, state and national elected officials and agency personnel and others.  Farm Bureau's policy development process is a hands on, unique experience anchored in tradition and success.    

Farm Bureau Policy is developed in two ways, through . . .

  1. County Farm Bureau Annual Business Meetings
