Promotion & Education Committee

Promotion & Education (P&E) programs develop agriculture literacy, engage consumers and promote a positive image of agriculture.

The P&E Committee engages in the following programming statewide:

  • MFBF LEAP Conference
  • Safety and health
  • Agriculture in the Classroom
  • Consumer outreach
  • Minnesota State Fair
  • Leadership development

Men and women, farmers and ranchers, agriculture business professionals and all interested in agriculture are invited to participate in P&E programming.

The state committee is comprised of two individual Farm Bureau members from each of the seven MFBF board districts. Committee members are appointed to serve a two-year term and can serve up to three terms. State committee member applications are due August 15 each year.
