Indiana Farm Bureau’s Policy Advisory Groups have been meeting this spring and summer to review policy recommendations relevant to their areas of expertise. The groups also made few new recommendations of their own. These recommendations will be submitted to the resolutions committee, which meets July 22-24, and the resolutions committee’s recommendations will be forwarded to the delegate body for discussion on Aug. 23. PAGs for livestock and animal care, crops, government and fiscal policy, transportation and property rights met on June 30. The PAGs on rural development and nutrient management met earlier in the year.
