Farm Bureau members travel to Washington, D.C.

Fourteen Farm Bureau members from across Minnesota met with their members of Congress and Senators while in Washington, D.C. during the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) Farmers to Washington D.C. trip, March 23-27.

Participants met with Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken; Representatives Walz, Emmer Peterson, and Nolan; and staff from the offices of Representatives Kline and Paulsen.

During their meetings, Farm Bureau members discussed the importance of trade to Minnesota and encouraged the members of Congress to support Trade Promotion Authority in order to ensure that trade deals currently being negotiated are able to be finalized. The Farm Bureau members also asked for support to once again delist the Western Great Lakes Gray Wolves population in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan from the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and return the management of the wolf back to state control. They also talked about the importance of a federal, voluntary food labeling standard created through the newly introduced Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015.

“Research shows that the most effective way to communicate with your members of Congress is in Washington D.C.,” said MFBF President Kevin Paap. “It is vital to agriculture for our Senators and members of Congress to put a face to the families involved in Minnesota agriculture. Farm Bureau’s Farmers to Washington D.C. trip provides this opportunity.”

Attendees were able to be audience members with fellow Farm Bureau members from Iowa, Missouri and Texas during AgriTalk where they were addressed by U.S. House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (R-TX), U.S. House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson (D-MN), Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), Senator Roy Blunt, and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), and the state Farm Bureau presidents from Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri and Texas. President Kevin Paap as chair of the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) Trade Advisory Committee focused his comments on the importance of trade.

In addition, while in D.C. Farm Bureau members met with AFBF staff and D.C. Central Kitchen.
