Logan County Farm Bureau Members Advocate on Behalf of Agriculture in Frankfort

 

Logan County Farm Bureau members attended the Kentucky Farm Bureau Legislative Drive-In on March 7th in Frankfort. This event allowed county Farm Bureau leaders from across the state to visit directly with state senators and representatives at the state capitol and included KYFB’s annual Food Check-Out Day. Legislators were presented a basket of Kentucky-grown agricultural products to celebrate the safest, most affordable food in the world. The Logan County delegation met with State Senator Whitney Westerfield in his office and discussed agricultural issues affecting farm families.
