Wrapping Up 2013 IFAJ Congress

Chuck Zimmerman

Marcus RedigerCindy and I are close to wrapping up our coverage of the 2013 IFAJ Congress in Argentina but not quite done. As we arrived at the airport in Buenos Aires to return home I spent a few minutes with Marcus Rediger, President, IFAJ. Marcus is pictured on the left with Congress President, Carlos Curci Gonzalez.

Marcus says he was already looking back on a very successful IFAJ Congress with social and emotional experiences in meeting Argentina farmers and gauchos. He talks about the business of the IFAJ which is in great shape. Initiatives like working with young ag journalists are moving forward and a proposal regarding elections was passed after significant discussion. One of the most enjoyable experiences for him was on the livestock farm where you could talk personally with the gauchos and the river crossing we observed from boats.
