The 2012 Indiana Farm Bureau annual meeting is just days away.
Indiana Farm Bureau president Don Villwock says they are expecting around 2,000 members to take part in the two-day event in downtown Indianapolis that is full of useful information for farmers.
Villwock tells Brownfield the breakout sessions at this year’s convention cover a variety of topics that are important to Indiana’s farmers.
One of those sessions focuses on the new fertilizer use regulations. “Fred Whitford is one of our speakers and always does a great job sorting through and making sure farmers have the correct information to stay in compliance with the new fertilizer laws and regulations,” Villwock says.
Because Indiana Farm Bureau holds their resolution session in August – Villwock anticipates a pretty quick delegate session. “Really I don’t see at this delegate session that we’re going to tweak any of the policies and nothing new has really come up,” he says. “Really I think our delegate session will focus on the business of Farm Bureau. We’ll look at finances, go over our annual report, and then our elections and finally off to these great breakout sessions.”
Indiana’s Farm Bureau convention will be December 7 and 8 at the JW Mariott in downtown Indianapolis.
