2023 Ag Fest Highlights
Arizona Farm Bureau's Legislative Ag Fest took place on Wednesday, January 31st. Despite weather predictions for a cold and rainy day, the weather held out, and over 250 Farm Bureau members, Arizona legislators, and guests participated in the event.
Farm Bureau members from across the state were on hand and hosted 60 legislators throughout the event site. Legislators were able to visit county Farm Bureau booths to learn about our priority issues relevant to the current legislative session. Everyone was also treated to a delicious BBQ meal provided by the Farm Bureau Financial Services Grill Team.
Farm Bureau member, Jim Parks (Coconino County), hosting Representative Jennifer Longdon (LD 5).
Another treat included this year to compliment the desserts provided by the Women's Leadership Committee was ice cream. We included this tasty treat to bring attention to alfalfa and its importance to our state's agricultural economy, as well as to highlight the fact that alfalfa is a key component of the many dairy products, we, as consumers, enjoy.
Farm Bureau member, Tim Petersen (Yavapai County), host Senator Ken Bennet (LD 1).
Thank you to all our volunteer leader members for taking the time to leave your farm or ranch to share the importance of agriculture with our legislators. This event would not have been possible without you. We look forward to another great event next year!
Cochise County Farm Bureau members, Stephen Klump and Nathan Watkins host Senator Christine Marsh (LD 4) and Senator Mitzi Epstein (LD 12).
