Members Talk Sequester, Farm Bill in D.C.

3/12/2013 8:06:12 AM



Members of Nebraska Farm Bureau’s board of directors were in Washington, D.C., last week as part of a national affairs visit. Farm Bureau leaders met with all five members of Nebraska’s Congressional delegation expressing concern to proposed cuts to federal meat inspectors as part of the sequester. Board members shared support for development of a new farm bill that helps farmers and ranchers manage risk, but not guarantee a profit.

Those attending included President Steve Nelson of Axtell, First Vice President Mark McHargue of Central City, Sherry Vinton of Whitman, Nathan Bartels of Elk Creek, Del Ficke of Pleasant Dale, Scott Moore of Bartley, Kevin Peterson of Osceola, Myles Ramsey of Kenesaw and Tanya Storer of Whitman.
