Farm Bureau Plans Summer Conference In Miles City

The Montana Farm Bureau Summer Conference is set for June 10-12 in the historic cow town of Miles City. The summer conference provides an opportunity for the organization’s advisory committees to discuss current agricultural issues and concerns, and surface ideas for policy development. Events take place at the Custer County Events Center and the MCC Ag Advancement Center.

“Members from across the state are excited to attend our annual summer committee meetings and foundation fund raiser. It’s been over 10 years since Montana Farm Bureau hosted a statewide meeting from the beautiful eastern side of the state,” said MFBF president Cyndi Johnson. “There’s no shortage of policy topics again this year as we continue to fight for private property rights, strong rural communities and accurate agricultural education. Now is a great opportunity to join your local Farm Bureau Federation and get involved.”

The conference begins with Young Farmers and Ranchers (YF& R) Day, June 10. Morning tours include Wandering Acres flower farm and Cowboy Meats in Forsyth and an afternoon YF& R Committee meeting. The MFBF Women’s Leadership Committee (WLC) meets Monday afternoon and MFBF’s ACE Leadership Seminar is also planned for Monday.

The MFB Foundation will hold a western-themed “Foundation Round-up” fundraising dinner Tuesday evening. The event features an MFBF district basket auction and other entertaining fundraising activities benefitting the MFB Foundation with its mission to support agriculture education, research and community support.
