Farm Bureau Cheers the Austin Cary Learning Center Dedication

Private donors, officials from the University of Florida's School of Forest Resources and Conservation and other guests helped to dedicate the new Austin Cary Learning Center on April 5. The facility, located on the university’s Austin Cary Forest northeast of Gainesville, replaces an older building destroyed by fire three years ago.

Florida Farm Bureau Federation State Director Michael Dooner, Farm Bureau Assistant to the President Kevin Morgan and Farm Bureau members from across the state were on hand for the event. Florida Farm Bureau provided $50,000 for the project.

  • Farm Bureau Members Created Momentum For Priority Legislation

    The impact of grassroots activism was never more evident than during our Legislative Days in March. More than 400 Farm Bureau members traveled to Tallahassee so they could participate in a full round of meetings with Florida’s
    public leaders.

    Without question the most impressive effort made by our farmers and ranchers involved the small group discussions with our legislators. They presented their personal viewpoints on policy issues that affect their livelihoods.

    To say that they were effective advocates would be an understatement. They provided realistic appraisals of policy issues based upon their daily experiences as agricultural producers.
