American Farm Bureau Federation's (AFBF) 86th annual convention will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina on January 9-12, 2005. More than 5,000 Farm Bureau members from across the nation are expected to converge on the "Queen City" to celebrate agriculture and hammer out policies to guide Farm Bureau through 2005. "Charlotte says it represents the New Accent of the South, and I think Farm Bureau members will be pleasantly surprised to see how this dynamic city has preserved the past while embracing the future," said Rolland Hayenga, AFBFs annual convention coordinator. "While visiting Charlotte, farm and ranch families from across the nation will meet up with old friends, make new friends and learn more about the current issues driving the polices that affect their livelihoods."
