Although Farm Bureau policy has changed with changing conditions through the years, in recent times the philosophy of the Farm Bureau membership in regard to government and its role in agriculture has remained unchanged. It is based on the conviction that farmers can do more for themselves in co-operation with other farmers than through government action. Farm Bureau becomes stronger each year, and the stnonger it becomes, the better able we are to solve our problems. To advance and improve the economic, educational, social and cultural interests of agriculture including family and community development. To develop a united voice for an improved agriculture. Fayette County believes m large committees, it gives better coverage of our county and a well informed person makes for a better commltteeman, this in turn developes a stronger and hard working County Farm Bur**"• What does a sound, constructive organization need? 1. Adequate Finances. 2. Good sized membership. 3. Capable leadership. 4. Many workers.
