Through the decades with CFBF—1920s


Issue Date: January 23, 2019

The California Farm Bureau Federation marks its centennial in 2019. As part of our celebration, we'll highlight a different decade in our history each month.

During the 1920s:

  • CFBF established its Law and Utilities Department (1920), precursor of our current Legal Division;
  • Established the Publicity Department (1921), which is now known as the Communications/News Division;
  • Began the Organization Department (1929), now called the Marketing and Member Relations Division.
  • In 1925, CFBF began providing farm news via motion pictures and radio, as depicted in this image from the January 1926 issue of Farm Bureau Monthly.

Next month: the 1930s.
