Wisconsin Farm Bureau Annual Meeting and YFA Conference
The 101st WFBF Annual Meeting took on an all virtual format to keep members and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The virtual meeting was offered to WFBF members free of charge. The WFBF Annual Meeting was held December 4-5 and brought together Wisconsin farmers, ag business professionals and agriculture supporters to discuss top issues impacting agriculture. While a virtual event cannot replace the camaraderie and networking provided at an in-person event, there are many unique opportunities members will experience during the virtual conference.
“WFBF is committed to making this new format a successful experience for all members. We ask our county Farm Bureau members to be flexible, open-minded and willing to ask questions along the way.” – Joe Bragger, WFBF District 4 Board Director
One of the most important items of business at each WFBF Annual Meeting is the grassroots policy development process. This tradition will hold strong, although will be conducted in a virtual format. County Farm Bureaus elect voting delegates who will participate in a resolution session during Saturday’s program to establish policy positions to guide WFBF staff throughout 2021.
This year’s agenda features a great lineup of workshops and opportunities to celebrate the accomplishments of members from across the state!
*Registration for the 2020 WFBF Annual Meeting is now closed.

With this year’s WFBF Annual Meeting moving to a virtual format, the difficult decision was made to forego the silent auction. This is one of Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation’s largest fundraising events throughout the year. If you normally donated an item to or would bid on the silent auction, please consider making a donation to the Centennial fundraiser. All funds raised through this campaign benefit the agricultural education and leadership programs through the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation.
