Meet your Bureau County Farm Bureau Director- Rex Elmore

Rex Elmore has been a member of the Bureau County Farm Bureau since 1975. He decided to join the Board of Directors after being asked to do so, as he felt it was a privilege to be able to serve. Rex believes the most beneficial aspect of being with the Farm Bureau is staying involved in policy development, with which he has stayed active through trips to Washington, D.C. and the IAA Annual Meeting in Chicago.
