Our state's farming was represented well in the capitol city of Pierre. South Dakota Farm Bureau (SDFB) members from across the state recently took part in SDFB Day at the South Dakota Capitol on February 12, 2019.

Over 50 county Farm Bureau leaders joined members of the SDFB board of directors and staff for a day full of committee meetings and discussions with Governor Kristi Noem, Secretary of Agriculture Kim Vanneman, State Veterinarian Dr. Dusty Oedekoven and other elected officials.

Krystil Smit, SDFB Executive Director. said,

South Dakota Farm Bureau's grassroots members set the policy direction for the organization and having our members from all over the state at the capitol for SDFB Day was very impactful and important. They had the opportunity to talk personally with their local legislators about policy priorities and also see the legislative process at work.
