Louisiana Farm Bureau Federationlast updated: October 2013
The Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation is committed to the development and prosperity of Louisiana's farmers, ranchers and agriculture. Since 1922 we've been the voice of Louisiana agriculture.

The Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation is the state’s largest general farm organization representing farmers, ranchers and rural residents. We are a private, non-profit, non-governmental agency established in 1922 to bring a voice to agricultural issues.

Through a unified voice, the Farm Bureau speaks on behalf of farmers and ranchers at the local, state and national levels.

The Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation is part of the American Farm Bureau Federation, established in 1919, and is today the nation’s largest general farm and ranch organization. The Louisiana Farm Bureau has a membership of nearly 150,000 and includes farmers, ranchers, rural residents, landowners, agricultural lenders and others who have a vested interest in the future and prosperity of Louisiana agriculture.


Ag in the Classroom: Our goal is to help students gain a greater awareness of the role agriculture plays in the economy and society, so that they may become citizens who support wise agricultural policies. We provide resources and training for teachers to integrate agriculture across curricula. Visit our PLN page.

Young Farmers & Ranchers: Our goal is to promote and strengthen agriculture by offering opportunities for training and leadership experience to younger producers in the areas of public speaking, media training, issue advocacy, business development, networking, service leadership and telling the story of agriculture.

LFB Foundation: Our tax-exempt foundation was created to support students pursuing careers in agriculture. Annually, our foundation awards several scholarships to deserving students pursuing curricula directly benefiting the agricultural sector of Louisiana’s economy.
