                               RESOLUTION


 
Congratulating the American Farm Bureau Federation for a long tradition 
of advocacy on behalf of agriculture and rural America and for holding 
                      its 100th annual convention.

Whereas the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) grew out of the Extension 
        education movement at land grant colleges in the early 20th century, and 
        the organization's first formal national convention was held in Chicago 
        in 1919;
Whereas AFBF has been a vocal and reliable advocate for farmers, ranchers, and 
        rural Americans throughout the intervening 100 years;
Whereas the sentiments of the first national president of the AFBF, James Howard 
        of Iowa, ring as true today as a century ago, when he stated ``what's 
        good for farmers is good for America'';
Whereas AFBF represents farm and ranch families in all 50 States and Puerto 
        Rico, with 2,800 county Farm Bureaus and six million member-families;
Whereas Farm Bureau members are gathering this week in New Orleans, Louisiana, 
        at the 100th Annual AFBF Convention and IDEAg Trade Show to conduct 
        organizational business, participate in educational workshops, explore 
        local agriculture, and develop leadership skills through competitions; 
        and
Whereas the work of the AFBF is guided by a network of State organizations and 
        is led by President Vincent ``Zippy'' Duvall of Georgia: Now, therefore, 
        be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives congratulates the 
American Farm Bureau Federation for a long tradition of advocacy on 
behalf of agriculture and rural America and for holding its 100th 
annual convention.
