Press release

Four Montana Farm Bureau members including a Chester farmer have been chosen to serve on National Issue Advisory Committees for American Farm Bureau Federation.

“We’re very pleased to have four members of Montana Farm Bureau represented on these very important committees,” said MFBF President Hans McPherson. “The appointments are for two years, so we thank those who have served in past years, and look forward to these new committee members being active on the national level.”

These committees play an important role in AFBF’s policy implementation and development. Over the past years, committee members have made significant contributions to AFBF’s mission, from participating in advocacy fly-ins and doing media interviews to helping Farm Bureau develop comments on proposed regulations and providing input into the resolutions process.

The committees will meet March 8-9 at the American Farm Bureau offices in Washington, D.C., where they will discuss issues and how Farm Bureau policy can be crafted to address the concerns of the nation’s farmers and ranchers.

The four Montana agriculturalists are:

• Farm Policy — Megan Hedges, wheat and pulse farmer, Chester

• Animal Care —  Tonya Liles, cattle rancher, Terry

• Environmental Regulations — Don Steinbeisser, Jr., diversified farmer, Sidney

• Federal Lands — Chuck Rein, cattle rancher, Big Timber
