Annual Meeting Starts Tuesday

Fort Hall hosts the Idaho Farm Bureau's 76th Annual Meeting

Boise –The Idaho Farm Bureau kicks of its 76 annual meeting this week at the new convention center in Fort Hall. 

The Farm Bureau is the state's largest farm organization with more than 13-thousand members actively involved in production agriculture. Delegates representing 41 of Idaho’s 44 counties will set the organization’s course for 2016.

This week farmer delegates will debate a wide range of agriculture and natural resources policy matters. Many of those policies will make their way to the Idaho Legislature in the form of legislation.

More than 300 farmers and ranchers are expected this week at Fort Hall. The meeting gets underway Tuesday afternoon and will wrap up Thursday.
