Sound policy development is the foundation for the implementation of policy. The grassroots policy process serves as a springboard to the joint advocacy efforts of members and staff to achieve Farm Bureau policy at the local, state and national level. In order to be successful in implementing policy, the policy development process must lead to policy that is relevant to Farm Bureau’s mission, achievable, and flexible enough to allow compromise when needed. When the policy meets those criteria, Farm Bureau members and staff can advocate using data and real-world examples of how policy decisions will impact farmers and their livelihood.
