Plat Books & Motor Vehicle Rules Available2018 Warren-Henderson Counties Plat Books are available for purchase at Monmouth and Stronghurst W-HFB locations. ‘Motor Vehicle Rules for Illinois Farmers’, a select collection of information on motor vehicle regulations, produced and provided by Illinois Farm Bureau®, are available in Monmouth & Stronghurst offices. An online version of the booklet can be seen here.
FLAG THE TECHNOLOGYAs we are slowing rounding the corner toward planting season, W-HFB is again working to make available color coded flags that indicate herbicide tolerance (or lack thereof) in field crops. How the communication tool works: Color coded, pennant shaped flags that represent a particular herbicide trait are placed at the field entrance or in a conspicuous location in the field, thereby notifying adjoining field operators of the herbicide trait (or lack thereof) used in the flagged field. Window clings that identify the trait associated with each color are also available. Flags are available in our Monmouth office and can be arranged to be taken to Stronghurst.

IFB Offers New Podcast
The Warren-Henderson Farm Bureau® is a non-profit, membership organization. We one of 96 other Illinois county Farm Bureaus which make up the Illinois Farm Bureau. Each county Farm Bureau® is governed by their own board of directors consisting of farmer members.
Farm Bureau was originally organized to promote the most permanent and profitable system of agriculture possible as well as the education, social and financial welfare of its members. The organization has evolved into assisting farmers with legislative issues, providing leadership opportunities and educational programs, furnishing information on services and products and educating the general public about the agriculture industry.
We are a grassroots organization who takes direction from our members at the local level. The policies of the Illinois Farm Bureau are a result of resolutions submitted from county Farm Bureau®s and adopted by the voting delegation of farmer members at the Illinois Farm Bureau® annual meeting. We have both farmer (voting) members and non-farmer (associate, non-voting members). Anyone 18 years or older can become a member.
