Fifteen County Farm Bureaus were chosen from across the United States by American Farm Bureau Federation for their innovative, action- oriented programs. Barton County Farm Bureau Association is one of these fifteen counties to be honored for their Pasture Labeling program at the 2011 AFBF Annual Meeting in Atlanta Georgia.
Farm Bureau stands proud because each of its voting members exemplifies the grassroots strength and vision of agriculture.
