I've been a Farm Bureau Member for 25 years. I've participated in county, state and national programs. It is the 'voice of agriculture' and it's mission is to support agriculture and those who are providing food and fiber. Farm Bureau is organized to support farmers who face issues with water rights, environmental issues and legislative issues that threaten interference with farming practices. Utah Farm Bureau strongly supports an "Ag in the Classroom Program" that provides information to teachers so that they can integrate their lessons with lessons about agriculture. Agriculture is still our basic industry!!! We sometimes forget about where our food really comes from. I saw a quote recently which
said something like 'without farmers we would all be hungry, naked and cold'.
