NORWICH – Showing the muscle of the local agricultural industry, the Chenango County Farm Bureau returned from the 96th annual convention of the American Farm Bureau Federation last week touting its 14th national award.
Approximately 7,000 Farm Bureau members from across the country attended this year’s convention in San Diego, Calif. The event featured leaders and participants in the grassroots policies that will guide the American Farm Bureau Federation through 2015. It was also a chance for local farm bureau organizations to network, share ideas, and promote projects that address major issues in the farming industry through trade shows, general sessions and workshops.
“The successful programs and activities on display are a valuable resource for grassroots Farm Bureau members and help promote agriculture within farming communities,” said AFBF President Bob Stallman.
