Agri-Pulse Summit Includes Farm Bill Veterans

Cindy Zimmerman

The 2022 Agri-Pulse Food & Ag Policy Summit held Monday at the National Press Club was focused on laying the groundwork for the next farm bill and featured some of the most influential voices in farm policy including leaders of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees, as well as agricultural organizations and companies. It was the first time Agri-Pulse has been able to hold its premier event in person since 2019 and it was a huge success.

One of the highlights of the program was a discussion between two veteran farm bill negotiators – former Senate Ag Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (R-KS) and former House Ag Committee Chairman Collin Peterson (D-MN). The two shared stories going back to the 1996 “Freedom to Farm” bill, as well as perspectives on current events, such as the situation in Ukraine.

As always, the comfortable friendship between the two former members of Congress generated an interesting discussion, moderated by Jeff Nalley.
