  • to co-ordinate the efforts of the Federation of Agriculture units, agricultural organizations and the different branches of agriculture within the County
  • to act as the County affiliate of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, and to co-operate with organizations throughout Ontario in furthuring the interests of farmers and farm people
  • to assist in formulating and promoting county, provincial, national and international agricultural policies to meet changing economic conditions
