Rock County Farm Bureau

Rock County, Wisconsin

The Rock County Farm Bureau - chartered on April 19, 1919 - is the oldest farm bureau in the
State of Wisconsin. Credit goes to R. T. GLASSCO, who had heard about a farm bureau in Illinois and suggested Rock County's farmers form a similar organization. They did and elected George HULL as their first president (he later became the first president of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau and a state senator).
In 1920, the organization adopted the slogan, "Make Rock County First." By 1924, the Rock
County Farm Bureau Women had organized.
