WACO --- The 79th Annual Meeting of the Texas Farm Bureau will bring farmers and ranchers from across the state to craft policy positions and prepare for the challenges that agriculture faces in the coming months and years.
"It is important for us to listen to the needs and concerns of farmers and ranchers across the Lone Star State," said TFB President Kenneth Dierschke. "We take our responsibility very seriously. Our policy reflects the needs of the men and women who work tirelessly to ensure we have a plentiful domestic supply of nutritious and affordable food and enough fiber to create the textiles we all enjoy."
This year's policy discussions likely will center on the creation and passage of a federal farm bill, water rights, the drought, private property rights and more.
"It is imperative that Congress pass a new farm bill so farmers and ranchers know what to expect for the upcoming year," Dierschke said.
