U.S. Farmers & Ranchers in Action CEO Erin Fitzgerald and chairperson Anne Meis participated in a panel discussion on food and water systems during the kickoff of the Daugherty Water for Food Institute’s virtual global forum last week.
Meis operates a family farm in Nebraska with her husband and she serves as treasurer of Nebraska Soybean Board. As Chair of USFRA, Meis provided remarks earlier this year at a U.N. Food Systems Summit producer forum. “Our work has also been in conjunction with making sure the farmer voice is heard on the global stage,” said Meis. “We know how important it is that the food system begins with producers.”
The Water for Food forum continues this week with live and on-demand presentations focused on Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Agriculture and Water Management.Water for Food forum - USFRA CEO Erin Fitzgerald and chair Anne Meis (7:43)
