Illinois Farm Bureau: A Timeline
Take a look back at the Illinois Farm Bureau’s important milestones over the years:
1916 – Farmers form the Illinois Agricultural Association (IAA), which is commonly known as Illinois Farm Bureau (IFB).
1925 – IFB organizes the Farmers Mutual Reinsurance Company to help spread the risk of insuring farm buildings for fire. This marks the start of offering insurance as a benefit to IFB members.
