This year, nearly 300 members made the trip to Washington, D.C. to continue the organization’s grassroots policy development process and present their 2017 national priority issues to the Kentucky federal legislative delegation.

Eight members of Hardin County Farm Bureau attended this year's Congressional Tour.
