Rollover protection for Farm Bureau members
KCFB members can apply for a cash incentive to retrofit their farm tractor with a factory-built, dealer-installed Rollover Protection Structure (ROPS) and seat belt. It's a first-come first-served offer up to $500 per farm. Tractor overturns continue to be the leading cause of agricultural fatalities. ROPS are the only proven devices to protect a tractor operator in the event of an overturn. Call the Farm Bureau at 630-584-8660 to apply. 

KCFB Foundation scholarship deadline is near
College students and high school seniors have until Feb. 15 to apply for KCFB Foundation scholarships and internships. The Foundation offers several scholarships to members or dependents of members who wish to pursue higher education in an agricultural related field.  The Foundation provided 27 scholarships last year and since 1989 has awarded over $350,000 in tuition assistance to college students.

Members achieved the goal at the association’s Centennial Celebration in September 2013.Volunteers and staff from Kane County Farm Bureau shared MMC campaign information at the AFBF Convention in San Diego in January.
