Welcome to our new website!

We hope you'll take a moment to check things out. We are still under construction in some areas so please bear with us as we continue to enhance your web experience. 

 

Special Announcement: The Farm Bureau Family of Companies is dedicated to providing for and protecting Michiganders. To this end, we are encouraging all policyholders and members to review their coverage limits on their insurance policy(ies). With recent increases in the cost of goods, services, and construction, we want to do our part to ensure Michigan residents are properly protected. Please contact your local agent if you believe that your coverage limits may need to be increased.

Climate Change #74

We urge Michigan Farm Bureau, with the assistance of Michigan State University, to research and communicate to its membership the impact climate change legislation and policies and the resulting legislative and policy changes will have on our industry.

We support:

  • Research and investments to assist agriculture in adapting to climate variability.

We oppose:

  • Mandatory restrictions to achieve agricultural greenhouse gas emission reductions.
  • Mandates, such as carbon taxes or fees and cap and trade policies.
  • State or federal mandates that are not fully funded.
  • Any attempt to regulate emissions from animals.
  • Emission control rules for farming practices, farm equipment, grain handling facilities, etc.
  • The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy involvement in the state’s determination of energy needs; that is the role of the Michigan Public Service Commission.
  • Non-scientific assumptions linking bio-fuel production and international land use.
