Yellow rubber ducks are helping spread Farm Bureau’s message: If you can’t #FloatUs, it’s not #WOTUS.

Illinois Farm Bureau members continue to participate in the American Farm Bureau Federation’s social media campaign in support of repealing the 2015 “waters of the U.S.” rule.

Members Megan Dwyer, Director Gary Speckhart and Christian County Farm Bureau were among the first to tweet photos of their ducks in places that shouldn’t be considered federal waters – puddles, ditches, etc.

There’s still time to participate. Here’s how:

1. Get a rubber duck.

2. Share photos, videos and snaps on all your social media platforms of your duck on non-navigable areas of your land.

Some Illinois Farm Bureau members have already taken to Twitter to contribute to the #FloatUs campaign.
