Clay County Farm Bureau

Clay County Farm Bureau Annual Meeting

Promoting agriculture education and awareness is one of the top priorities of Clay County Farm Bureau. The county donates more than $16,000 annually in support of youth education. The core focus of the county’s annual meeting is youth education. The meeting serves as a venue to recognize young future leaders in the community. Local 4-H and FFA students are on hand to accept a generous monetary donation for the 4-H Foundation and FFA Chapters. A cake auction also benefits the two programs. Local teachers are awarded mini-grant checks for bringing agriculture into the classroom. The event is a tradition for local community members, public officials and state legislators.

In addition to the county annual meeting, Clay County Farm Bureau is a primary supporter of the Clay County Agricultural Fair through the 4-H/FFA Youth Livestock Sale. The county provides a home-cooked barbecue lunch for all participants and their families in appreciation of their hard work and dedication.
