January 27-February 4, 2018
The objectives of the 2018 tour are to: 1) see how and where South American producers are out-competing American farmers, 2) determine the major factors enhancing South American competitiveness (e.g., investment in infrastructure, R&D, and biofuels programs and more streamlined regulatory processes) and 3) develop effective leaders willing to be active spokespersons on those issues at the state and national level.
Participants will likely depart Illinois on Saturday, January 27 and return on Sunday, February 4, 2018.
All applicants must:
Airfare, meals, ground transportation, and 8 nights lodging are covered in the Issues Tour fee. Individual participants are responsible for incidental expenses (passport fee, VISA for Brazil, phone calls, souvenirs, etc.). To be considered for the Argentina/Brazil Issues Tour, please complete the application as soon as possible and click SUBMIT. A copy of your application will then be sent to your local county Farm Bureau. IFB’s deadline for applications is Monday, November 13 at 4:00 p.m. This means you should plan to submit your application the week prior to the deadline (or earlier) so your CFB may consider possible sponsorship.
