MISSISSIPPI FARM BUREAU'S annual Summer Commodity Conference, a forum for producers to develop policy at the grassroots level, will be held at the Jackson, Miss., Hilton July 8-9.

Policies developed at the meeting will be forwarded to a state resolutions committee to be analyzed and sent on for consideration at Farm Bureau's annual convention. If passed, they become Farm Bureau policy and have the full weight of the 230,000-member state farm organization behind them.

After a general session, attendees will break out into individual commodity advisory groups.
