Following the morning opening session of the American Farm Bureau Federation convention, President Bob Stallman held a press conference. Lots of good questions on just about every issue including labor, budget, farm bill, political climate and more. I asked him about measuring the success of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance which he chairs and mentioned in his speech today. Bob says that USFRA from the beginning has made it of prime importance to have measurable goals. He says that this past fall a research project showed that USFRA has scored well in terms of how it is influencing the discussion of food and food production. That same study showed ways to improve too.
