Farmer and rancher delegates to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 100th Annual Convention adopted policies to guide the organization’s work during its centennial year on key topics such as farm bill implementation, cell-cultured food products, trade, rural broadband access and rural mental health programs.
“As our organization has done for the last 100 years, grassroots delegates from across the nation came together to express a unified voice on issues vital to the success of our farms, ranches and rural communities,” said Zippy Duvall, American Farm Bureau Federation president . “It was fitting to have President Trump and numerous members of Congress among our attendees as we kicked off our centennial celebration. We continue to face a challenging farm economy and we stand ready to work with Congress and the Trump administration to address the issues important to our farm and ranch families.”
Delegates urged the administration and Congress to work together to end the government shutdown as soon as possible.
