Thanks To All Who Made The W-HFB Annual Meeting a SuccessW-HFB hosted its 31st Annual Meeting on the evening of June 25th at the VFW in Monmouth. During the meeting, Chad Long and Adam Martin, retiring directors, were recognized for their many years of service to W-HFB. The 2019-20 Foundation scholarship recipients were also introduced. Rob Elliott of Cameron was awarded with the evening’s Ag Service Award. After the meeting portion, a live/silent auction was held by the W-HFB Foundation and Ag Education Partnership. Van Adkisson was the evening’s auctioneer and due to the generosity of sponsors, donors, and bidders, the auction campaign raised over $14,500 to be split between the scholarship and ag in the classroom programs.

Warren-Henderson Takes on the 10 Gallon Milk Challenge
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.
