In 1914, a group of farmers realized that they could function better through an organization of their own. This organization was later to be known as the Clinton County Farm Bureau. Soon, other counties realized the value of farm and farmer support and quickly formed similar organizations. Charter members included farmers, teachers, bankers, lawyers, merchants, local commercial club leaders, chambers of commerce officials, real estate brokers, coal operators, stock buyers and editors. These men and women created Farm Bureau because they wanted to help agriculture assume its place in a stable economy.
On Dec. 27, 1918, the Iowa Farm Bureau was born.
