Montana Farm Bureau has captured the prestigious Pinnacle Award, the highest honor a state Farm Bureau can be awarded for program and membership achievement. MFBF President Cyndi Johnson received the award during the American Farm Bureau Federation 104th Annual Convention which runs through January 11.

MFBF also captured four Awards of Excellence, which are presented to state Farm Bureaus that demonstrated outstanding achievements in four program areas: Advocacy, Coalitions & Partnerships, Engagement & Outreach and Leadership & Business Development.

“Montana Farm Bureau Federation is extremely proud of the efforts of our volunteer members across the state who've participated in advocacy, coalitions and partnerships, leadership development and engagement and outreach,” said Johnson. “These extensive efforts resulted in Awards of Excellence in all four categories and, coupled with achieving quota in our membership group, it was a real honor to accept the Pinnacle Award for the second year in a row. Our dedicated staff and willing volunteers create and shepherd great projects and programs for Montana's rural and agricultural communities.”
