Agricultural Legislative Day - March 13, 2024

Illinois Agriculture Legislative Day brings together representatives from nearly 50 diverse agricultural organizations to meet with state lawmakers. Jointly, these organizations provide baskets filled with agricultural products and specialty lunches for the legislators. These items serve as a reminder of the multiple facets agriculture touches in the lives of their constituents and the impacts their choices make on the industry. 

IALD provides an opportunity to strengthen and build relationships among various entities effecting Illinois agriculture.

A special thank you to our industry partners, for providing the essentials for IALD, including a boxed lunch and commodity basket for each legislator. We are also fortunate to have the support of more than 1,000 Illinois FFA members and their vocational-agriculture teachers. 

It is our agricultural community who makes this event truly successful. We appreciate your commitment and support for the 54th IALD.
