Celebrating Farmers and Ranchers
At Farm Bureau, we understand that farming and ranching is more than a “job” – it’s a calling. Many farmers and ranchers have been at it for generations; and yet, others are new to the lifestyle. Whatever your operation, we’re in your corner and this March we’re focused on helping you improve the safety of your operation while also celebrating the work you do to put food on our tables and clothes on our backs.
Agricultural Safety Awareness Program (ASAP) – March 1-7, 2020
Across the country, county and state Farm Bureaus are sharing safety and health issues that the agricultural industry faces through the American Farm Bureau’s Agricultural Safety Awareness Program. As part of ASAP, March 1-7 has been designated Agricultural Safety Awareness Week. Farm Bureau Financial Services is proud to join in the effort to make farms and ranches safer for the families and their employees who run them.

National Ag Week – March 22-28, 2020
Food - and the farmers and ranchers who produce it - brings everyone to the table. We pause this week to celebrate the contributions of our farmers and ranchers. Whether you’re a farmer, work in the ag industry, or are a consumer who appreciates the bounty of food and fiber found in our country, you know the ag industry touches all of us. Take time this week to thank a farmer, and commend them for everything they do!
It’s your future. Let’s protect it.®
