CFBF First Vice President Kenny Watkins, President Paul Wenger and Second Vice President Jamie Johansson
Thank you for your membership in Farm Bureau. With your Farm Bureau membership, you are joining together with fellow farmers, ranchers and allied agricultural businesspeople, to multiply your ability to protect your farm, as well as all family farms and ranches in America's No. 1 agricultural state.
Farm Bureau defines grassroots involvement because our advocacy starts at the local level with the dedicated service and representation provided by 53 county Farm Bureaus. That grassroots power extends to the nation's largest farm organization, the American Farm Bureau Federation.
The California Farm Bureau Federation is proud to work with the volunteers and staff at our county and national levels, to benefit the people who keep food on our plates, clothes on our backs and beauty in our landscapes. On the following pages, you'll see a brief summary of topics and services our organization engaged in during 2013.
Keep in mind that this merely scratches the surface of the issues on which Farm Bureau advocates on behalf of family farmers and ranchers. Your continued membership makes it all possible, and I believe this report demonstrates that Farm Bureau truly is working for you.
