Montana Farm Bureau Convention, Nov. 8-11
The 102nd Montana Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention is slated for November 8-11 at the DoubleTree and Northern Hotels in Billings. Members can expect to hear speakers on various topics, discuss policy for the coming year and enjoy the camaraderie with farmers and ranchers from across the state.
Highlights of the convention include speakers Jay Hill, who will engage members to keep pushing for their way of life; Mike Pearson, who will present an outlook for the farm markets and global trends; and Frank King, who will illustrate how suicide prevention practices facilitate a healthier, more productive farm. Workshops include a calving seminar with a calving simulator, grazing management decisions following a drought, legacy planning, and building on consumer trust.
The heart of the convention is bringing together voting delegates from county Farm Bureaus to debate and discuss policy for 2022. Each county meets in September to develop policy based on issues of concern; that policy is brought to the state convention for a vote.
