Donating to the Minnesota Farm Bureau FoundationCounty Board Challenge The Minnesota Farm Bureau (MFB) Foundation Board of Directors and the MFB Promotion and Education Committee challenge every county Farm Bureau Board of Director in Minnesota to support the growth of the MFB Foundation through the County Board Challenge Program. The MFB Foundation challenges every county board member to donate $10.00 or more on an individual basis to the MFB Foundation. Those counties that have every board member contribute during the MFB fiscal year to the MFB Foundation will receive recognition at the MFBF Annual Meeting. For more information call 651-768-2118 or email@example.com.
Wills provide many donors an excellent opportunity to support the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation in the future. Donors may bequeath a fixed percentage of their estate or a specified amount.
Donors may chose to give to the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation through the donation of cash, securities, real or personal property. Donors may specify which area of the Foundation they wish their gift to be used towards.
A donation made in honor of a person, for an event such as a birthday or anniversary, is a generous and thoughtful gesture to recognize their contributions.
Memorial gifts offer a fitting way to remember people who have touched your life and honor their memory.

Ag Cab Lab-Combine and Tractor
The Case IH Ag Cab Lab - Combine and Tractor places viewers “at the controls” inside the cab. Participants can start the tractor and drive it for two minutes while the tractor works the field pulling a disc. While“driving,” viewers sit in the seat, move the levers and push the pedals. The Ag Cab Labs are outfitted with a 32” flat screen monitor on the inside of the cab and a 19: screen which acts as the rear view mirror to simulate what would be going on behind the tractor. A 32” flat screen monitor outside of the cab displays 90 second videos displaying other uses of a tractor.
The clips include: harvesting soybeans, harvesting silage, corn harvest, wheat harvest, vegetable harvest, combine controls, sugar beet harvest, tractor controls, spring tillage, planting, be a farmer, women in agriculture, fields to food, fields to fuel, farmers going green, corn, soybeans and cutting hay.
