Farm Bureau and farmers
Sheila Hasselstrom took time off from her sheep operation in Winchester to attend the Leadership meeting.
“I’m Sheila Hasselstrom of Lewis-Clearwater County is my board and county. What I like about Farm Bureau is the family influence. I love that we come here as a husband and wife. I love that members come with the kids and I love that we get together and join family and farming all in one, and accomplish things!”
Long-time State Board Director Travis McAffee says the meetings offer a chance to see old friends from across the State.
“I’m Travis McAffee, I’m on the State Board, I farm out of Howe, I do a cow-calf operation we raise barley and hay also.” “Tell us about Farm Bureau and these meetings?’ “The meetings! You get to see all your friends, you get to know what’s going on in the state. Everyone knows it's dry and gets to ask them about what their situation is, It’s just a big family. You’re seeing people you haven’t seen a few months and it’s nice.”
