Mason County Farm Bureau Selected as an Exhibitor at American Farm Bureau's Annual Convention

Mason County Farm Bureau was one of two Kentucky counties selected as an exhibitor at the American Farm Bureau Convention in Nashville, TN for achievement in the KFB County Activities of Excellence Competition.

Mason County Farm Bureau was recognized for its creation of a mobile Ag library. The traveling book barn is a bookshelf, in the shape of a barn, filled with Ag books for ages 3-12.  They attached wheels to the barn so that they can easily move it to the local schools and libraries.  Each school library in the community has an opportunity to "host" the book barn for a month long period. Each activity period involves reading a book, singing farm songs, and creating a craft or food product.  Each child takes home a farm animal bookmark with the traveling book barn logo.

Kentucky Farm Bureau President Mark Haney Statement on Passage of the Farm Bill

I can’t tell you how pleased I am we have passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. As I have said before, this bill is the single most important piece of legislation connected to agriculture we have, and with its passage comes the certainty farm families need to move forward with their operations, in a very challenging ag economy.
