Ag Advisory Committees

Ag Advisory Committees

For a list of 2017 recommendations from KFB's advisory committees,  click here.

Ag Advisory Committees were authorized in the fall of 1997 by the Kansas Farm Bureau Board of Directors in order to “provide Farm Bureau members increased participation, a more efficient method of surfacing concerns, interests and needs regarding specific commodities and to enhance Kansas Farm Bureaus’ ability to respond to issues and programming needs critical to the profitability and risk management of specific agricultural commodity enterprises."

The Farm Bureau members below currently serve on these important committees.


Get Involved

Advisory committee members are appointed by the KFB president with recommendations from the district board directors. Members are appointed to serve one year terms (Oct. 1 to Sept. 30), and can serve up to three terms in one position.
If you are interested in serving on an advisory committee, contact your district board director.
