More than 1,700 Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) members from across the state will gather for the organization’s 93rd annual meeting Wednesday - Saturday at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. Delegates from all of the state’s 120 counties assemble for the four-day event to participate in committee meetings, business sessions, award presentations, officer elections and to adopt 2013 priority issues and policy revisions.
In addition to conducting organizational business, KFB hosts its annual meeting to reflect on both the successes and challenges experienced in Kentucky’s agriculture industry over the previous year. The full agenda of delegate activities begins on Thursday, December 6, with 10 commodity and special interest conferences covering a range of topics from tobacco and livestock to farm labor and agricultural chemicals. A one-day tradeshow – featuring agriculture associations and businesses from around the country, the KFB County Activities of Excellence and student agricultural science displays – simultaneously occupies the exhibit halls. Guest comments from Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer and a keynote address from Craig Jagger, Principal and Founder of Legis Consulting, LLC, in Maryland, highlight the day’s Commodity Luncheon.
