American Farm Bureau has served farmers and ranchers across the country for a century as the Voice of Agriculture®. The innovative, action-oriented programs developed by county Farm Bureaus are a huge part of the overall success of Farm Bureau. The AFBF County Activities of Excellence (CAE) Awards are designed to celebrate unique volunteer-driven programming at the local level. We want to recognize and share successful county Farm Bureau programs and activities to help generate even more grassroots activity. The CAE program categorizes activities into the following areas: Education and Ag Promotion, Member Services, Public Relations and Information, Leadership Development and Policy Implementation.

Up to 24 county Farm Bureau activities from across the nation will be selected to display in the IDEAg Trade Show in January 2020, in Austin, TX.
