Program areas at AFBF

Fbnews is the flagship publication for afbf and a service that the organization provides to Farm Bureau members and the agriculture industry. The e-newsletter explains the impacts of legislative and regulatory issues, provides updates on the status of those issues and delivers news about the Farm Bureau organization's activities and events. The publication does not run paid advertising.

The American Farm Bureau Federation in 2013 acquired an llc dedicated to the production of regional Farm shows and the publication of two magazines promoting agriculture. The ideag business fit perfectly with Farm Bureau's goals of providing information, networking and education resources and opportunities to members, thus the tagline "for agriculture, by agriculture."

American Farm Bureau Federation promotes agriculture and advocates for the economic, social and educational interests of its members. Through public relations, government relations, legal advocacy, industry relations, rural development and leadership training programs, afbf provides numerous services to members, advocates for all farmers and ranchers, and equips members with the skills and information resources needed to advocate on their own behalf.
