What makes Michigan Farm Bureau amazing? What’s our sturdy foundation made of? What marches us forward and keeps us relevant to Michigan agriculture today and in the future?

It’s not what. It’s who: our members!

Last September our state Young Farmer committee agreed it needed a better understanding of current and future MFB leaders: what they do for a living, what their future goals are, how they prefer their communications and where they get that information from.

Working with MFB’s data collection team they created a survey to glean as much information as possible about these vital, engaged members—to better understand and better serve the needs of Young Farmers.

The more responses the better, so the committee loaded the prize bin with tempting incentives: Apple Watches and iPads, smart TVs, Yeti coolers and—the grand prize—a side-by-side Polaris Ranger.

If you haven’t already, please take five minutes to complete this simple survey and help our state Young Farmer committee better serve your needs.

If you’re outside the age range (18-35 years), please encourage your favorite Young Farmer to take it instead!

The prize drawing takes place at our June 14 Centennial Celebration event at the Farm Bureau Center in Lansing.

MFB’s Young Farmer program develops new industry leaders, equips them with a deep understanding of the organization’s philosophy and goals, and always strives to serve their needs, both personally and professionally. For more information, contact Justin Hein at 517-679-5658.
