Historic Time for Farm Bureau — The new leader of North Dakota Farm Bureau was in Washington, D.C. this past week with all of the other state Farm Bureau presidents. The American Farm Bureau Federation was working on the national resolutions process in preparation for January's convention. NDFB President Daryl Lies says it was a perfect time to begin his time as president with the political movement happening in AFBF. “We’ve got four announced candidates for president and four announced candidates for vice-president. There’s a lot of handshaking and discussions going on about their philosophies and values they have.” Lies was elected North Dakota Farm Bureau president in November.
