February 2022 FloridAgriculture eNewsletter
The 2022 Legislative Session is underway, and as Farm Bureau’s legislative priorities inch closer to the finish line, the Farm Bureau Tallahassee office has been lucky to have a great group of visitors this session to help push our cause at the capitol.
The Young Farmers & Ranchers Leadership Class 9, completed a three-day training in Tallahassee, which included media training from American Farm Bureau’s Johnna Miller. Additionally, the group had the opportunity to meet with members of Congress and the Florida Legislature to advocate on behalf of the Florida agriculture industry. The class shared important policy issues and explained how they impact them on a day-to-day basis.
Florida Farm Bureau Farmer of the Year Jerry Dakin also visited the Tallahassee office and was recognized before the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee for this distinguished honor. We anticipate the following weeks to be full of robust agendas, and we look forward to sharing the successes of Farm Bureau in the coming weeks.
