Not an Illinois Farm Bureau member? Take a look at some of the reasons why you should join the state's largest farm organization.
Young Leaders is a member-created, member-driven program of Illinois Farm Bureau. Illinois Farm Bureau® is a membership organization controlled by farmers who join IFB® through their county Farm Bureau. There are 95 county organizations in Illinois. IFB is a not for profit corporation. IFB’s legal name is the Illinois Agricultural Association which was founded in 1916 by a group of farmers who met at the University of Illinois to discuss the need for education, better information, and more effective farming practices. Today, IFB represents two out of three Illinois farmers.
Illinois Farm Bureau: Tells the farmer’s story to the public, updates members on new technology and information that impacts agriculture, represents farmers in local, state, and national legislative & political activities, provides marketing and education services to help IFB members improve their net farm income.
