All annual farm bureau meetings begin the pledge of allegiance (wild sound). In Canyon County, Idaho, over 100 local farmers gathered for the annual meeting where good food is met by exclamation. Then a few reports from County leaders (wild sound). And guest speaker, Idaho state representative Judy Boyle, the author of Idaho’s new trespass law. Idaho Farm Bureau strongly supported the law that continues to be misrepresented by opposition interest groups. Boyle explained the reasonable person standard in the law that seems confusing to some. “There’s a reasonable person that would come up on property, let’s say they were on public land, and they come up on a fence and it is your land on the other side of that fence. That is one point where you have to post. You post so that a reasonable person can see that posting.” She also clarified where money collected from fines is allocated. “There’s not many deputies and departments are small. We have very little private property to be taxed, so that’s another problem. I decided what we are going to do is give part of this money to the sheriff so that he can have that for his budget.” At night’s and door prize gifts are awarded to attendees. A meeting of farmers brought to you by Farm Bureau not just in Idaho but across America.
