The goal of Farm Bureau’s Commodity Division is to give Idaho farmers and ranchers the best information and create opportunities that maximize profits. Farm Bureau organizes and finances marketing seminars throughout the state for its members and facilitates trade missions to other countries to expand new markets for Idaho commodities.
Members from all around the state are elected by their peers to serve on commodity committees. Those committees develop recommendations to address the challenges relating to specific commodities. The recommendations go directly to the Board of Directors. This is in addition to the regular Farm Bureau policy development process.
