Promotion, Education & Safety
Agriculture plays an important role in all our lives. Farm Bureau's Promotion and Education program offers a variety of opportunities for you to get involved. The program is coordinated through the NDFB Promotion & Education Committee, which is comprised of individuals elected to their positions in each of NDFB's nine districts. If you would like to help, contact Joey Bailey, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow the P&E Committee on Facebook.
