OathSpending

Volunteers for Agriculture is the political action committee of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation.

They generally sponsor direct mailings that support Republican candidates for statewide office and the legislature, however they backed Justice Michael Gableman in his Spring 2008 nonpartisan race for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
 
In the 2010 fall elections, the PAC endorsed Republican primary candidate Marv Prestrud to replace independent Jeff Wood in Assembly District 67 and Scott Walker for governor.  The group sponsored a 30-second radio ad in October supporting Walker because it claimed he would lower taxes and help farmers.

Last active election: 2008
