FOND DU LAC  - Members of the Fond du Lac County Farm Bureau will hold the annual meeting on Monday, Sept. 18, at the Holiday Inn in Fond du Lac. 

Registration time starts at 7 p.m. and the meal will be served at 7:30.

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 Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting in Wisconsin Dells, Dec. 2 through 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.

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. 

For more information, call Becky Hibicki at 920-517-2445.
