Re: What do farmers want?

289, there`s a old saying about `things are run by those that show up` and I think the original quote has "the 5% that show up".  Believe it or not, most people don`t want to be a part of setting policy...oh, many of the majority that don`t get involved aren`t bashful about complaining in the coffee shop.  If someone doesn`t want to serve on the Farm Bureau board, yet take pot shots at the organization from the cheap seats, should I take them seriously?

 

If 90% of members don`t return a questionnaire and shake their head "no" when asked to serve on the board..."silence is complacency" ...they`re just damned lucky that with the Farm Bureau, that the "5% that show up" are looking out for the farmers.
