ABT Club

The ABT club is a Collegiate Farm Bureau club. The club meets every Tuesday in room 207 at 11:00a.m. for planning and camaraderie. This club is very active, our club annually attends the National Young Farmer and Rancher Conference. The club has fundraisers in order to be able to financially afford our activities. Our fundraisers have been selling Beef House Rolls and Christmas Wreaths. The club participates in several community service activities which include: built raised garden beds at Helping His Hands Food Pantry, setting out flags for the Indiana Presbyterian Church for Veteran’s Day, and parades.

Our collegiate members are recognized as Collegiate Farm Bureau members. As Farm Bureau members they are still eligible for all of the benefits general Farm Bureau members receive.

To assist in our information management and alert system, the club has a newly created website to ensure our club members and the general public has a running idea of the club works.

On this website you will be able to review previous club minutes and agendas, meet the officers, meet the club chairs, and our active club calendar.
