The difference between farm bureau insurance and Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation

The Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation is a grassroots advocacy organization founded in 1920. In 1948, members of the Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation saw a need for farmers and ranchers to have good insurance so they formed an affiliated insurance company now known as Mountain West Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company (MWFBMIC). MWFBIC is a separate entity. Policyholders are not required to have a Federation membership or vice versa. However, membership in the Federation offers benefit discounts to MWFBMIC policy holders.
