Put November 15, 2012 on your calendar to tune it to the USFRA Food Dialogues which will be streaming live from New York City. Yours truly will be there covering the event.
During the 2012 National Association of Farm Broadcasting convention I got an update on the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance from board chairman Bob Stallman, President, AFBF. Here’s Bob doing one of his many interviews with farm broadcasters yesterday. It was two years ago that Bob made the announcement of the formation of USFRA.
Bob says it has been about fourteen months since USFRA has started running its active programs. The first goal was to get all the producer groups in the country to participate and they got most of them. Then the job was to bring in the checkoff programs and industry partners. Bob says, “We’re off and running. But we knew this needs to be a long term effort.”
