Centennial Celebration

Cent_headerCentCelsidebarIllinois Farm Bureau kicks off Centennial Celebrations for 2016 a bit early, starting at the Farm Progress Show on September 1st. We've planned a 16 month nod to Farm Bureau heritage that really gains steam at the 2015 Annual Meeting where archival footage will be shown of farmer members and past presidents. The exhibit hall will feature vintage artifacts, antique farming equipment will be on display, and lots of other rich historical moments will surprise attendees.

We hope you will join in the celebrations as we honor a century of rich farming heritage in Illinois!
