COUNTRY & IFB Webinars

COUNTRY Financial® and IFB to deliver 2021 farm planning information through online webinars

Since 1925, COUNTRY Financial has helped protect Illinois farms. In more recent decades, COUNTRY has teamed up with county farm bureaus to deliver planning and protection updates to help Illinois farmers better prepare for the upcoming planting season and beyond. Even during a national pandemic, farmers across Illinois and the entire United States are continuing their work to support their families and feed our country. There is always uncertainty around what spring, summer and fall may bring, but COUNTRY Financial and your local farm bureau remain ready to assist you through every season, even if it may need to look a little different to keep everyone safe.
