The July meeting of the Logan County Farm Bureau Federation was held at the Schochoh Community Center. The Farm Bureau Young Farmers grilled pork chops to complete the pot luck meal enjoyed by all. Several elected officials or their representative were in attendance. 

This annual picnic event gives Farm Bureau an opportunity to express their appreciation to those who hold office, for the work they do on behalf of farmers and agriculture in general. The elected officials were given the opportunity to speak on subjects that were of interest and concern to those present.

Following the meal, Pres. Jeremy Robertson conducted the FB July business meeting. Preliminary plans were made for the annual meeting scheduled for 6:00 p.m. Sept. 17 at the Extension office.
