           Delegate Session at the SDFB Centennial Convention 

As they do each year, the members of the South Dakota Farm Bureau adopted State Policies at the organization's annual meeting held in November.  The policymaking process begins from the grassroots at the county Farm Bureau level, where resolutions are passed by the farmer and rancher members and are brought to the state level for consideration. 

The Farm Bureau's State Policy Book is available below.

The SDFB Board of Directors have identified key priorities for the 2018 Farm Bill.
