Farm Bureau and many partnering stakeholders continue to combat government overreach through a legal challenge of the Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy’s permit for large livestock operations.

Coronavirus

Farm Bureau supported state & federal COVID-19 response efforts and proactively advocated on behalf of agriculture on countless fronts including government guidance, vaccine information, PPE assistance, relief funding, and more.

Crop Protection Tools

More than 800 members and supporters showed support for the continued use of glyphosate and atrazine by submitting public comments to the Environmental Protection Agency.
