MENOMONIE – Dunn County Farm Bureau held their annual meeting on Tuesday, September 25th at Dean & Sue’s in Menomonie.

During the meeting, members discussed a wide range of issues including broadband, wildlife, and supply management.  Resolutions passed during this meeting will be forwarded on for consideration by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation’s policy development committee. As a grassroots organization, it is Farm Bureau’s members on the county level who create and set the policy goals of the state’s leading farm organization. The Wisconsin Farm Bureau is often asked to get involved in issues affecting production agriculture and rural Wisconsin both in Madison and Washington D.C.

Tara Prochnow joined the board of directors as the new Young Farmer and Agriculturist Chair. During the meeting, delegates were also elected to attend the Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Annual Meeting in December to represent Dunn County Farm Bureau. Delegates to the 2018 WFBF Annual Meeting will be: Carl Casper, Marv Prestrud, Tony Christopherson, Kevin Gilbertson, and Tara Prochnow.

In addition to the regular business at the Dunn County Farm Bureau Annual Meeting, Darryl Kovacik was awarded the Dunn County Farm Bureau Service to Agriculture Award to honor the more than 30 years that he has served on the Dunn County Farm Bureau board of directors as well as the numerous years of service he has given to his community.
