Members of the Dunn County Farm Bureau will hold their annual meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 26, at Dean & Sue’s in Menomonie. Social hour begins at 6:30 p.m., with the meal at 7:30 p.m. and followed by the business meeting. Meal cost is $5 per person; new members are free.
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 WFBF Annual Meeting in Wisconsin Dells, Dec. 2-4.
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 crafting, discussing and forwarding policy recommendations on emerging agricultural issues including water quality, labeling and marketing of agricultural products and the 2018 Farm Bill.
