Friend of Farm Bureau recognized

Boise--Idaho Congressman Raul Labrador was recognized as a friend of Idaho Agriculture by the Idaho Farm Bureau Thursday afternoon in the Boise office at 500 West Washington. 


"I can also say that it seems clear to all of us why Idaho Farm Bureau, from leadership to grassroots to staff, nominate Rep. Labrador for the Friend of Farm Bureau for the 114th Congress," Said IFBF Public Affairs Director Russ Hendricks. "His consistent, strong support of the issues important to farmers and ranchers; the access to both himself and staff, along with responsiveness; and the leadership he provides on those issue most critical to Idaho".

This award is given each Congress based on two key factors – first, is a quantified report on how each member of a State Farm Bureau’s delegation voted, which AFBF provides as information to each state on their respective delegation; second, each state then considers that information along with additional factors specific to their respective processes and nominates to the AFBF Board of Directors for consideration. 



"This award, while approved by the AFBF Board, is based on the experience and relationship the Idaho Farm Bureau has in working with Rep. Labrador," added Hendricks.
