Idaho Farm Bureau's 70th Annual Meeting

Farm Bureau Member Attends 64th Annual Meeting

Idaho Falls--Dale Rockwood has attended the Idaho Farm Bureau Annual Meeting ever year since 1946, Harry Truman was President, that's when a good car cost $1800 and a fancy house for just $16,000. Rockwood got the house, the car and liked Truman, but he says the best value for the dollar over the years has been the Idaho Farm Bureau.

"We needed someone to watch over us, someone to let 'em know back in Washington and Boise that we were here, The Farm Bureau did that and still do that," he says.

Rockwood serves on the Bonneville County Farm Bureau Board of Directors, is a past President of the Idaho Farm Bureau and served 40 years on local irrigation company boards. He even served a stint on the powerful Committee of Nine but he says, of all the groups he says Farm Bureau packs a lot of clout.
