Montana Farm Bureaus 99th annual convention in Billings.
The Montana Farm Bureau uses a grass-roots approach to represent the voice of agriculture at local, state and national levels. Working to keep Montana growing for generations to come, ensuring you; the Montana farmer and rancher has a seat at the table. A respected voice in the conversation. And a hand in the outcome. Below is how we effect policy, and evoke advocacy at the state and national levels:
Center For Food Integrity.
Consumers have questions about food — where it comes from, who’s producing it and how. Their healthy curiosity and skepticism is why we exist.
It’s not about supporting a certain outcome. We don’t lobby or advocate on behalf of any brand or company or food production method.
We simply want to make sure that consumers — in an environment where they are bombarded with contradictions — have the balanced information they need about food to make informed choices that are right for them and their families.
We’re a not-for-profit organization whose members and project partners represent the diversity of today’s food system — from farmers, ranchers and food companies to universities, non-governmental organizations, restaurants, retailers and food processors.
