Warren-Henderson Takes on the 10 Gallon Milk Challenge’


‘Get to Know Us’ is a feature of some of our Farm Bureau Young Leaders and volunteers. We hope to share what agriculture means to those featured, share the variety of agricultural jobs/careers in our surrounding areas, and have our communities get to know us a little better! This month’s feature is on: Gayle Baker.


Local Legislators Receive Friend of Ag Awards

State Representative Norine Hammond of the 93rd District, State Representative Randy Frese of the 94th District, Senator Jil Tracy of the 47th District, and Representative Cheri Bustos of the 17th District have all been recipients of Illinois Farm Bureau ACTIVATOR’s Friend of Agriculture Awards.  The Friend of Agriculture award is given to sitting legislators running for re-election in the Illinois General Assembly and U.S. House of Representatives with proven records of fighting for farmers across Illinois. ACTIVATOR, Illinois Farm Bureau’s Political Involvement Fund, endorses candidates regardless of party affiliation who work to support farmers and the agriculture industry. ACTIVATOR is a voluntary, segregated, non-profit fund that has trustees from all country farm bureaus who vote to determine who receives Friend of Agriculture awards.

IFB Offers New Podcast

Illinois Farm Bureau members can listen to and download a new series of podcasts called “Back to our Grassroots” at this link. In the first episode, expert market analysts compare the current tariff situation with previous trade decisions, as well as their global impact. The podcasts were created as a way for IFB to communicate with its members on “hot” agriculture topics.

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. 

Warren-Henderson Farm Bureau®’s mission statement:
“To Promote and Support Agriculture and our Communities"
