The day will begin with a legislative briefing by the MFB Government Relations staff, followed by a chance to sit in on the legislative session. A hot luncheon at the Calvert House will bring together farmers and legislators from across the state as all legislators will be invited to attend. With only a couple of farmer legislatures in the General Assembly, we need now more than ever to educate our representatives on the value of agriculture to this state. This is a great opportunity to talk to the Senators and Delegates from your area and to help folks from the city districts better understand your farming business.
