There are a lot of good reasons for being a Farm Bureau member. Being Farm Bureau member in Nevada means you are part of an advocacy organization championing the public policy positions developed by farmer/rancher members and adopted through the annual policy development process. Farm Bureau gives farmers and ranchers a voice.

When you become a Farm Bureau member you are joining your local county Farm Bureau. County Farm Bureaus are active in their communities, working to promote agriculture. Along with their involvement in local events like county farms or Ag in the classroom projects County Farm Bureaus offer farmer/rancher members the opportunity to be involved with creating policy and guiding the organization in our lobbying efforts.

Additional areas for member involvement are the organizations Young Farmers & Ranchers and Women’s Leadership Committee’s. The Young Farmers & Ranchers is a committee designed for young individuals who are both agriculture producers and enthusiasts between the ages of 18 and 35 years old. Women’s Leadership committee plays a vital role in educating students and the general public through Ag Days, classroom outreach and county fairs. These two programs encourage members to participate in activates and become active leaders in Farm Bureau.
