Why take the time to attend the WyFB YF&R Conference

By Kailey Barlow, Sublette County Rancher and WyFB YF&R Committee Member

Every time I check Facebook, read a newspaper, or just listen to the talk around town, I’m quickly reminded that the agriculture industry is facing what can seem like unsurmountable challenges. That is why I choose to be active in the Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation and attend the Wyoming Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers conference every year. The Wyoming Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers conference has a different focus every year, so it always provides new learning opportunities. A couple years ago we learned about farm and ranch succession, last year the conference focused on farm and ranch profitability, and I can’t wait for this year’s “Liberty and Justice for Ag” conference that will have a legislative focus. The conference is open to all farmers, ranchers, and those interested in agriculture business across the state. (more…)

New Clean Water Rule provides clarity – Jan. 23, 2020

January 23, 2020–The Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation (WyFB) applauds today’s announcement of a new Clean Water rule that brings much-needed clarity and certainty to enforcement of the Clean Water Act. The new rule issued by the EPA and Corps of Engineers brings clarity to which level of government – federal or state – oversees dry land that is sometimes wet. The new rule does not change who oversees permanent waterways, such as lakes, rivers, streams and other bodies that always or usually contain water. It does make clear that usually dry areas should not be considered federal waters. The new rule does not reduce environmental protections for water. (more…)
