MFBF to “Pull for Education” at Conference


Plans for the Montana Farm Bureau Federation Summer Conference, June 14-16 at the GranTree in Bozeman, are well underway.  The theme, Pulling for Education, is reflected in the many scheduled events including a keynote address by Montana State University President Dr. Waded Cruzado, a tractor show, and dinner at the new Bobcat Stadium. 

On Wednesday of the conference, all MFBF Advisory Committees will meet to discuss issues and policies, featuring pertinent speakers and plenty of discussion about Montana’s largest industry, agriculture.  The Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act/climate change, energy, estate taxes, agricultural chemicals, and 2012 Farm Bill will be hot topics. 

On Thursday, the Montana Farm Bureau Foundation will host a day full of fun.  The events kick off with the 11th Annual Hack and Blast Charity Golf Tournament at Bridger Creek Golf Course.  Meanwhile, the public is invited to the tractor show and will have an opportunity to learn about where their food comes from.  In the afternoon, the education theme will be reflected in two tour stops: the new MSU Animal Bioscience Building and the Museum of the Rockies.  To wrap up the day, the annual MFB Foundation dinner and auction will be held in the new MSU Bobcat Stadium.

“We’re looking forward to this being an excellent conference right here in the backyard of Montana Farm Bureau Federation and our land grant university,” notes MFBF President Bob Hanson. “We’re delighted that Dr. Cruzado will be joining us for much of the event, and it will be great for members to see the new Animal Bio-Science Building, since their donations helped make the building a reality.  We have several fun events planned as well, making this a not-to-miss event for our members.”
