SPARKS, Nev – The 2013 Nevada Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention will be held November 21-23 at the Santa Fe Station in Las Vegas, Nev. This is Nevada Farm Bureau’s 94th Annual Convention.
This year Nevada Farm Bureau and the Nevada Department of Agriculture are teaming up to host the inaugural Southern Nevada Agriculture Conference, which is set for November 21. During the conference participants can attend sessions to hear from experts in the fields of agriculture exporting, selling local, marketing, food safety, business planning, hydroponics and aquaponics. “As Nevada agriculture continues to grow, we plan to provide valuable educational resources like the Southern Nevada Agriculture Conference to effectively grow and promote the state industry,” said Jeff Sutich, International Marketing Coordinator at the Department of Agriculture.
Nevada Farm Bureau President Hank Combs said, “We are excited to jointly host the Southern Nevada Agriculture Conference with the Nevada Department of Agriculture. The conference will give farmers and ranchers great information that will benefit their farms and ranches.”
The Nevada Farm Bureau Convention provides farmer/rancher members the opportunity to give policy input and direction that sets the course for the organization. “Farm Bureau is a grassroots advocacy organization with member-developed policy,” said Combs. “The organization’s policy positions guide Farm Bureau through legislative and regulatory meetings.”
