Ag Literacy is the committee that provides education, training, and materials relevant to agriculture. The program is organized by a part time coordinator who also visits 4th & 5th graders in Grundy County each month to provide a new lesson on agriculture.
Provides a link between Farm Bureau and state/national legislators to inform and educate our elected officials of the impact of the policies the vote upon.
Local Affairs Committee
Works directly with local government and elected officials to improve the understanding of agriculture within the community.
LACE (Ladies in Agriculture Committee, Et Al)
The LACE group holds various programs created by ladies interested in agriculture. Watch for upcoming events such as a winery trip, canning/freezing lesson, container gardening, and estate planning.
Provides programs on commodities and marketing to farmers to better their net income.
Provides opportunities in Farm Bureau for maintaining programs and services for members as well as seeking out new members for the county.
The YL Committee is designed for anyone 18-35 (although we welcome older and younger attendees) interested in agriculture. Throughout the year various projects include Grain Bin Rescue programs, Food Check-Out Week events, Food Drives and much much more!
Allows members to get involved in the organization’s policy development process.
Being an Advocate for Ag Just Got Easier
Become more involved by contacting legislators on issues important to agriculture and rural communities. FB ACT (Farm Bureau Agricultural Contact Team).
When you join FB ACT, you are expected to do two things: vote and respond to action requests by emailing or calling your elected officials on key agricultural issues. Your involvement in additional activities will help to build your relationship with your elected officials and make these tasks easier, but most find these two tasks to be pretty simple ways to protect their farms.
