Farm Bureau and FVC Partnership Release New Resource Guide

A resource guide from the American Farm Bureau Federation encourages a smooth transition for military veterans seeking employment in the agricultural industry.

The new resource guide is created through a partnership with the Farmer Veteran Coalition. The two organizations have combined efforts to assist military veterans planning a career in agriculture and the resources are likely to appeal to a large percentage of troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

“Through this partnership, I am optimistic returning veterans will learn how to continue their service to our country by helping feed its citizens, nourish its land and make its rural communities more viable through the many entrepreneurial opportunities agriculture has to offer,” said American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman.

The resource guide provides Farm Bureaus with a simple framework outlining the many ways that are available to participate in the new partnership and assist returning veterans interested in staking their futures on agriculture and rural America.
