WFBF Centennial Celebration
In 1920, Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation was officially organized and became the 32nd state to join the American Farm Bureau Federation with 537 members. By the first Annual Meeting in 1921, WFBF membership had grown to 2,000 members in 15 counties. Annual dues were $2.50.
Fast forward nearly 100 years and WFBF will officially kick off a centennial celebration at the 2018 Annual Meeting and YFA Conference with the year-long commemoration concluding at the 2019 Annual Meeting and YFA Conference.
Share Your Farm Bureau Story
WFBF will be celebrating 100 years by sharing 100 Farm Bureau stories. No matter if you have been a long-time member or joined recently, your story is worth sharing! Did you meet your significant other at a Farm Bureau event? Maybe you helped organize an inaugural event in your county.
