Nevada Farm Bureau is a grassroots organization. Farmers and ranchers in each county throughout the state have the opportunity to discuss issues that are facing agriculture in their respective communities. Through the annual policy development process, members can draft policy recommendations to be presented for further consideration. Each fall, county leaders from all over the state elect delegates to represent their counties. These delegates vote on the policy recommendations brought forth for Farm Bureau policy.

Those resolutions that are approved by the voting delegate body are adopted in the Nevada Farm Bureau Policy Book. NVFB Leadership uses this book to represent the interests of Nevada agriculture in various areas where public policy is addressed, including local, state and federal agencies as well as in legislative discussions. Farm Bureau is one of the most powerful lobbying organizations in our country and works hard to represent the voice of agriculture in every region, state, county, and town.
