​​ Vermilion County Farm Bureau
  Serving Vermilion County Agriculture Since 1918

Illinois Farm Bureau is asking Farm Bureau members to send an email to their U.S. Representative asking them to cosponsor and support two pieces of legislation, the Stopping Excessive Climate Reporting Act, and the Protect Farmers from the SEC Act.
Earlier this year, the SEC proposed a rule to require climate-related disclosures for publicly traded companies. If adopted, the rule would mandate climate

change reporting

requirements that

will regulate not

only publicly

traded companies but would impact every company in the value chain, including farms. The task of reporting and tracking emissions data would fall to farmers who lack the resources and means to document all the necessary information. This could include potentially invasive and burdensome information about farms in the reports.

To send your email, click on the red box above. You can also text ‘SEC’ to 52886 to take action and send your message today.

Vermilion County Farm Bureau

members are urged to post signs

on their property to promote the

IL Farm Bureau $1,000 Crime

Reward Program. It offers a

$1,000 reward to the person

that gives information leading to the felony conviction of a person or persons committing theft, damage to property, arson or similar felony crimes against ag production-related property in Illinois. The signs are available at the Farm Bureau office. The first sign is free, with additional signs available for cost ($2.50). There are also stickers available that the be placed on your property as a deterrent to rural crime.

Harvest season has begun, with

farmers spending long hours

bringing in this year's crop. That

means farm equipment will be 

sharing the roads. Although 

National Farm Safety & Health

Week is past, you still need to be

vigilant about staying safe and

healthy throughout the harvest

season. Be safe on rural roads while farm equipment is moving from farm to field. Take rest and meal breaks to keep yourself physically and mentally fit to get through the harvest season.
