Texas Farm Bureau Annual Meeting set for Dec. 1-3
Texas farmers and ranchers will address policy issues—such as eminent domain reform, transportation and food labeling—at the 85th annual meeting of Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) Dec. 1-3 in Corpus Christi.
Members from the state’s 206 county Farm Bureaus will work together to craft policy positions and prepare for the challenges agriculture faces.
“It is important for us to address the needs and concerns of the Texas farm and ranch community,” TFB President Russell Boening said. “Our grassroots policy reflects the thinking of those who work to ensure we have a plentiful domestic supply of food, fiber and fuel.”
About 1,000 Texas farmers and ranchers are expected in Corpus Christi during the meeting to discuss the latest agricultural issues, recognize successes from the past year and evaluate the organization’s policies.
The meeting will begin at the American Bank Center Dec. 1 with registration at 9 a.m. Saturday’s events include TFB member services and benefits exhibits, the Free Enterprise Speech contest, Discussion Meet and Young Farmer & Rancher social.
The meeting will continue Sunday, Dec. 2, with a devotional, followed by membership recognition awards, Pioneer Award presentations and the naming of the 2018 Outstanding Young Farmer & Rancher and Excellence in Agriculture award winners.
Sunday afternoon will feature the president’s annual address to the TFB delegates.
The TFB Annual Meeting will conclude Monday, Dec. 3, with the organization’s annual business session.
