Production agriculture includes the growing, cultivating, harvesting, and marketing of animals and plants for food, feed, fiber and fuel. IFB policy specialists understand and appreciate the hard work and dedication it takes to operate and maintain a farm. Ever increasing government regulation and red tape can make it impossible for farmers to have a productive business.
To ensure new regulations are fair and will not have an adverse effect on Indiana agriculture, IFB staff and members carefully monitor new regulations, submit comments regarding new regulations, and work closely with national and state executive agencies. Additionally, IFB policy specialists actively engage with members to identify and develop new policies that have direct impacts on their farms and livelihoods. These policies are adopted in IFB policy books on an annual basis and are used by our dedicated policy specialists to advocate and lobby our elected officials at the state and federal levels.
