Michigan Farm Bureau represents and enhances the interests of our members. Policy and politics play a key role in the organization as our staff and members serve as agricultural advocates. Working with local, state and federal elected officials and regulatory leaders is vital to the success of implementing our member-driven policy.
Show support for EPA’s newly proposed Clean Water rule. Unlike the overreaching 2015 Waters of the U.S. Rule, the new rule offers farmers the ability to produce food, fiber and fuel with certainty, while simultaneously protecting water quality.
