What Types of Legal Issues Does the Fund Support?
How Can the Legal Defense Fund Help Me?
The Legal Defense Fund steps in to help cover the cost of legal representation for members to ensure that cost alone isn't barrier to you defending your rights as a farmer or rancher.
Please consider a contribution from your county to the MFB Legal Defense Fund this summer.
Help your fellow farmers today to set the precedent that will impact your farm tomorrow.
If you are currently facing a legal dispute and would like to request a grant, you should complete an application (click here or on the image below) and submit it to Michigan Farm Bureau. Michigan Farm Bureau will do a legal review and consult with the Legal Defense Fund Committee. The committee is made up of Farm Bureau regular members. The committee will make a recommendation to the Michigan Farm Bureau Board of Directors. The Board of Directors will then deny or grant (in full or in part) the request for funding.
