May is Membership Month at Montana Farm Bureau
May 4, 2022
BOZEMAN, Montana—May is Membership Month at the Montana Farm Bureau, and the state’s largest general agricultural organization has planned a month of activities both recognizing and recruiting members.
“The greatest advocates for Montana agriculture are Montana Farm Bureau’s volunteer members,” said MFBF President Cyndi Johnson. “They spend an incredible amount of time and energy educating the next generation of Montana farmers and ranchers and they invest in their communities with workshops and events focused on current issues facing agriculture and rural communities. It’s exciting to be recognizing those volunteers this month and finding out why they are Farm Bureau Proud.”
“In a time when agriculture needs respected advocacy, reliable representation and a factual message, Montana Farm Bureau Federation is the strongest voice for agriculture in Helena and in Washington, D.C.,” said the Conrad wheat farmer. “In addition, a membership saves you a lot of money whether you’re buying a new tractor or taking a trip with your family.”
Farm Bureau offers something for everyone whether you’re a student (Collegiate Farm Bureau), young farmer or rancher (YF&R Committee), a woman (Women’s Leadership Committee); in addition, farming and ranching members can serve on Farm Bureau’s variety of advisory committees.
Membership Month is divided into four weeks:
• May 2-6 – Farm Bureau Proud Week
• May 9-13 – Member Benefits Week
• May 16-20 – Member Appreciation Week
• May 16 – Recognize volunteers on MFBF Advisory Committees

• May 18 ‐ Recognize Recruiter and Recruited Members
• May 19 – Recognize our Mountain West Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Co. agents and staff
• May 20 – Recognize county Farm Bureau Leaders

“If you have any connection to or interest in agriculture, we want you to be a part of our grassroots organization,” said Johnson.
