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.
