Centennial Celebration of South Dakota Farm Bureau Recognized by Governor Dennis Daugaard

South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard today issued an Executive Proclamation honoring 2017 as the Centennial Celebration of South Dakota Farm Bureau.

In the proclamation Daugaard recognized the role South Dakota Farm Bureau plays to serve its members and enrich their lives through advocacy, rural community support, and policy development. 

“South Dakota Farm Bureau members surface issues and develop policy based on their beliefs and concerns, and provide strong advocacy work at the local, state and national levels and take action for farm and ranch families and rural communities,” added Daugaard in the proclamation.

SDFB Board members were on hand to receive the executive proclamation during a ceremony in the Governor’s Office.

Established in 1917, SDFB represents more than 16,000 farm, ranch and rural families in South Dakota. SDFB will be celebrating its Centennial Convention November 17-18, 2017 at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. More information about SDFB can be found at www.sdfbf.org.
