The MFBF Summer Conference will be held June 5-7 at the GranTree Inn in Bozeman. The summer conference provides an opportunity for the organization's advisory committees to discuss current agricultural issues and concerns and surface ideas for policy development.

Keynote speakers include Matt Rush, a national leadership and agricultural advocacy speaker, and Ryan Osmundson, director of budget and program planning for the State of Montana, who will present “The State of Montana’s Budget.”  Kirk Donsbach with StoneX will provide the educational workshop, “Hedging: How to Manage Market Risk.”

The MFBF Summer Conference begins Monday morning with MFBF Board and Foundation Board meetings and the Young Farmers & Ranchers, Women's Leadership, and Policy Development Committee meetings. 

Nine issues advisory committees will meet Tuesday to hear informative speakers on pertinent topics and discuss potential policy to take back to their county Farm Bureaus.

The MFB Foundation will hold its “Welcome to the Block” Fundraiser on Tuesday evening. The event will be held at Montana Farm Bureau’s new building west of Bozeman and feature an MFBF district basket auction and other fundraisers benefitting the MFB Foundation with its mission to support agriculture education, research, and community support. Wednesday's agricultural-themed tour includes the Producer Partnership processing plant and Skattum Dairy, both in the Livingston area and West Paw, a pet products manufacturer based in Bozeman.
