INFLUENCE: The goal of FB Advocacy is simple: Increase Farm Bureau's effectiveness and visibility as the national ADVOCATE for farmers and ranchers.
ACTION: The strength of FB Advocacy is Farm Bureau members who unite to speak out on issues of concern for the nation’s farmers and ranchers, rural Americans and consumers.
IMPACT: Beginning at the grassroots level and involving Farm Bureau members’ advocacy efforts across the country, all of agriculture speaks with one voice through FB Advocacy.
Let’s be frank – several years of low commodity prices and continued market uncertainty are creating an economic challenge for America’s agriculture producers. For some of these farming and ranching families restructuring and reorganizing their debt under provisions designed specifically for farmers can help keep the family farm in business. Ask Congress to support the Family Farmer Relief Act of 2019 now!
Farmers and ranchers across the country have endured devastating natural disasters in 2018 and the trend continues in 2019. Congress is considering bills to aid the recovery of rural communities ravaged by wildfires in the west, hurricanes across the South and flooding in the Midwest.
Both chambers of Congress will be in recess from April 15-26 with many legislators at home hosting Town Hall meetings. Legislators use these opportunities to gauge the level of concern our members have on important ag issues. Farm Bureau members need to ‘Show Up & Speak Up’ so your representatives know exactly where we stand on the need for disaster relief for the agriculture communities that have been devastated by natural disasters.
