Our Impact

2020 Farm Bureau Impact Report

America’s farmers and ranchers rose to the challenges of 2020, working together across the food chain to ensure our nation’s food supply remained secure in these uncertain times. The American Farm Bureau Federation has been proud to tell that story, focusing on ensuring that our nation’s farms and ranches keep running throughout and well beyond this crisis. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and the crises it brought our way, we never let-up on the gas pedal to make progress on ag labor, regulatory reform, increasing broadband access, addressing mental health in rural America and expanding trade.

Program Areas

Advocacy

Policy is changing constantly, and it has a direct impact on farmers and ranchers.

Having a voice – a seat at the table and an impact on policy – is critical. Beginning at the grassroots level and involving Farm Bureau members’ advocacy efforts across the country, all of agriculture speaks with one voice through the American Farm Bureau Federation.

Education

The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture works to build awareness, understanding and a positive perception of agriculture through education.

The Foundation is creating agriculturally literate citizens through our educational programs, grants, scholarships, classroom curriculum, and volunteer trainings.

The Foundation also builds relationships with educational institutions to introduce ag education tools and resources, and encourages adoption at the community, county, state, and national level.

Empowerment

From its beginnings nearly a century ago, Farm Bureau has existed to give members the tools they need to succeed.

That can mean financial expertise, communication skills, advocacy opportunities, training and opportunities to network with and learn from fellow farmers and ranchers. It all adds up to helping America’s farmers and ranchers stay strong and prosperous.
