The American Egg Board (AEB) connects America’s egg farmers with consumers, communicates the value of The incredible edible egg™ and receives funding from a national legislative checkoff on all egg production from companies with more than 75,000 hens in the continental United States.
AEB's mission is to increase demand for eggs and egg products through research, education and promotion.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
To promote and protect the standard-bred poultry industry in all its phases.
To continue the publication of the American Standard of Perfection with the breed and variety descriptions for all the recognized purebred fowl.
To encourage and protect poultry shows as being the show window of our industry, an education for both breeders and public, and a means of interesting young future breeders in taking up poultry.
To assist, encourage and help educate the junior poultry man to the sound and practical value of standard-bred poultry and pure breeding.
Toward these goals the APA supports sanctioned meets at poultry shows all over the US and Canada, including an Annual meet and a Semi-Annual meet. Individual members earn points at these shows toward becoming a Master Exhibitor as well as receiving awards from the association.
The APA publishes a quarterly newsletter and an annual yearbook. The newsletter is sent to all members and the yearbook is sent to individual members and Endowment Trust members.
The yearbook features many different articles, membership listings, advertisements, APA licensed judges and master exhibitor information.
ATLANTIC SALMON FEDERATION is working wherever there are Atlantic salmon in North America, out at sea, and internationally.
The Atlantic Salmon has for centuries been named the king of fish for its power and grace. But now it is much more:
A symbol of all that is wild and beautiful to millions of people
An important part of rural economies along the rivers where it spawns
An important bond between the culture of First Nations and all others who share its heritage
A species that has drawn an international commitment and determination to see that numbers are restored to historic levels - despite dams, acid rain, bad forestry practices and other abuses of the environment

The National Association of Wheat Growers was founded more than 60 years ago by producers who wanted to work together for the common good of the industry. Today, NAWG works with its 22 affiliated state associations and many coalition partners on issues as diverse as federal farm policy, environmental regulation, the future commercialization of biotechnology in wheat and uniting the wheat industry around common goals.
A New Agrarian is someone who believes that there is and must be a future for rural places as rural places and as a fully integrated part of the 21st-century world. A future, that is, in which rural places neither wither away nor become so urbanized that they lose their rural character—yet one that is truly a future, not a hidebound extension of the past for its own sake. - See more at: http://www.newagrarian.com/whats-a-new-agrarian/#sthash.caOdIiY5.dpuf
