Concerned about agricultural crimes? Yuba-Sutter Farm Bureau is hosting an Ag Crime Prevention meeting on Wednesday, August 13th at the Farm Bureau office located at 475 N. Palora Avenue in Yuba City beginning at 6PM. YSFB agricultural members are encouraged to attend.

Increasing levels of metal theft and the continued rise in rural highlight the need for YSFB’s efforts to bring together local law enforcement and current technology available for farmers and ranchers to reduce their risk of farm theft.

Tyler Skeller with Bay Alarm Systems will provide a presentation on remote camera systems available for rural and farm settings. Matt Lagorio with YSFB Young Farmers & Ranchers will provide information on the Owner Applied Number (OAN) program. Law enforcement representatives from Yuba and Sutter County Sheriffs’ offices will be available for a question and answer session aimed at increasing the lines of communication between rural residents. 

The meeting is free to YSFB Farm Bureau members and a casual dinner will be provided. RSVP to the YSFB office at (530) 673-6550.
