Collegiate Farm Bureau

Purpose

Collegiate Farm Bureau provides involvement opportunities for students interested in agriculture at twelve chapters throughout Illinois. The purpose of the Collegiate Farm Bureau program is to bridge the gap between participation in high school agriculture programs such as 4-H and FFA and future involvement as an Illinois Farm Bureau member.
