I appreciate both of your comments about the Farm Bureau, Beth and Gib.
I do have a question, though, for you as sometime members and
participants. The point was made earlier in this discussion that the
Farm Bureau annually takes positions on policies that would seem to be
pretty far out of their area of interest--or expertise. Welfare policy
is an example. I was surprized a number of years ago, when I studied
county-by-county resolutions for the state of Arkansas, to find the
number of things upon which resolutions were "coming up" from the county
level. I couldn't believe then, and don't believe now, that these just
automatically "floated up" from the local people. Am I wrong? What do
you know about your own county FB association and its annual resolution
process? How does it actually work?
