“New Mexico Farm & Livestock Bureau was created in 1917 out of the need for advocacy,” says President Craig Ogden as he explains the importance of policy development. “Over 100 years later, that need is still very prevalent. Without clear and concise policy, advocacy can’t happen. And good policy can only be created by you - the grassroots. You all are the heart of Farm Bureau and your policies guide the staff to champion our cause.” Watch our page for a video on policy development featuring Chad Smith, Valerie Huerta and Tiffany Rivera.
