Allies in Agriculture

 

Allies in Agriculture is a partnership effort between Farm Bureau and county government officials across Illinois. Illinois Farm Bureau is collaborating with county Farm Bureaus to improve communication with local officials and help them better understand the significance of agriculture to their county.

 

Agriculture is important in Illinois, generating revenue, creating jobs and supporting the economy down to the local level. It’s vital to farmers’ success to continuously remind government officials of those benefits.

 

As a gesture of a county’s support for agriculture, county Farm Bureaus are working with local officials to adopt Pro-Agriculture Resolutions. These proclamations signify that government officials in that county understand agriculture’s importance. Counties that pass these resolutions will be given plaques that they can proudly display to demonstrate their status as an Ally in Agriculture.

 

This map highlights counties that have passed Pro-Agriculture Resolutions so far. If your county isn’t highlighted yet, contact your county Farm Bureau to find out how you can help.
