Michelle Rook, WNAX Farm Director in Yankton, SD., led the discussion during the Legislative Roundtable at the 71st National Association of Farm Broadcasting’s annual convention. Blake Hurst, President of the Missouri Farm Bureau, and Steve Nelson, Nebraska Farm Bureau President, served as this year’s panelists.
The ag leaders reviewed the current direction of the United States agricultural issues and policy on the local, state and national level.
The duo first addressed their assessment on the recent midterm elections and how it will impact our ability to take care of some important ag business in the near future. Other questions from the floors included concern about Water of the United States and EPA, farmings ability to continue to feed a growing world and how the Farm Bill programs have been implemented.
