Iowa Farm Bureau Passes Policies At Summer Conference

A National policy priority approved by Iowa Farm Bureau members at their recent summer conference calls for a change to Country of Origin Labeling. President Craig Hill says they’ll ask the American Farm Bureau to call for changing it from mandatory to voluntary.

Hill says their major state policy calls for asking for an increase in funding of state check off programs.

He says another state policy priority is calling for legislators to put more funding into infrastructure projects.
