Montana: Farm Bureau Summer Conference June 14-16 is ‘Pulling for Education’

Montana Farm Bureau (MFB) producer members from across the state will head to the GranTree Inn in Bozeman, June 14-16, for the organization’s summer conference.

The theme, “Pulling for Education,” will be reflected in the speaker lineup as well as Thursday’s educational tours. Commissioner of Higher Education Sheila Stearns will address the group during the luncheon June 15 and MSU President Waded Cruzado will give an update on the state’s land grant university at the MFB Foundation Dinner Thursday evening at Bobcat Stadium.

The Montana Farm Bureau Federation Summer Conference is the time when members from 11 advisory committees come together to discuss issues and work on policy ideas. The advisory committees, ranging in everything from animal health to wheat and weeds, as well as the MFB Women’s Leadership and Young Farmer and Rancher committees, have business meetings and relevant speakers. The equine, sheep, livestock and animal health committees will address livestock loss and bison. Wyoming state legislator Sue Wallis will tell the committees about her work on the unwanted horse issue. The wheat, small grains and forage, weed and taxation committees will hear experts on rail arbitration, aquatic invaders and an update on the Montana Department of Revenue Ag Land Tax Reappraisal Lawsuit.

Thursday includes educational tours of Kimm’s Potato Farm and the Montana Gluten Free Plant along with an afternoon tour of the MSU Animal BioScience Building and the Museum of the Rockies. Those not touring will compete in the MFB Foundation Golf Tournament.

Festivities Wednesday evening include a Pitchfork Fondue at the Montana Farm Bureau building in Bozeman. Any proceeds from the fondue will go towards scholarships for the MSU College of Ag. Thursday evening’s events include the MFB Foundation Fundraising Dinner and Auction at MSU’s Bobcat Stadium.

“We’re looking forward to having our members see Montana Farm Bureau’s hometown, as well as a few important sites on the MSU campus,” noted MFBF President Bob Hanson. “It’s a real honor to have MSU President Cruzado and Commissioner Stearns spending time with us. The tours will be exceptional, and this promises to be an outstanding event.”
