The American Farm Bureau Federation officially opened up the registration period for the 2021 American Farm Bureau Virtual Convention which runs January 10th-13th. For the first time in history, the group waived all registration fees to give all Farm Bureau members, as well as anyone interested in agriculture, the opportunity to experience one of agriculture’s premier events from the comfort and safety of home.
“We are excited to open up the doors of this event and to bring home the high-quality content our attendees have come to expect from our events,” says Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall. “Our featured speakers this year are no strangers to Farm Bureau.”
Duvall said they’re honored to have Mike Rowe of the hit TV series Dirty Jobs and his newest show called Returning the Favor. He’ll join the virtual convention as the special guest during a fireside chat in the closing general session. Land O’ Lakes President and CEO Beth Ford will also join the convention to talk about hot topics and issues facing agriculture. The event also features an inspirational keynote address from Navy Seal Commander Rorke T. Denver.
