The International Federation of Agricultural Journalists kicked off their 2018 Congress today in the Netherlands. The theme is Dutch Roots, Small Country Big Solutions. We have a group of U.S. ag journalists participating as always. Wish I was with them. But next year the Congress will be back in the USA!
Thank you to Josephine van Gelder for this photo of the delegates meeting that is kicking off the Congress. Besides this business session of the association there will be awards and each day different farm tours. The tours are one of the best parts of the Congress. I’ve learned a lot about farming in countries all over the world from my attendance in past years. It serves to make you a better ag journalist in my opinion. Additionally, you have the chance to meet with ag journalists from lots of countries and talk about your work and the challenges and benefits you enjoy.
