Guthrie County Farm Bureau was recognized as an “Outstanding County Farm Bureau” during Iowa Farm Bureau Federation’s 105th annual meeting, held Dec. 5-6 in Des Moines.         

This designation is awarded to Farm Bureaus that connect with community members and elected officials about today’s family farm practices and engage in local, philanthropic activities.

“Our organization’s success starts at the county level,” said Brent Johnson, Iowa Farm Bureau president. “That’s what it means to be grassroots, and it cannot be stated enough the important role our members play in advocating for agriculture and creating vibrant rural communities.”
