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.
