President’s Column – Get Out the Rural Vote
In Nebraska Farm Bureau president Mark McHargue’s latest column, he urges members to turn out to the polls on May 10 or get their mail-in ballots submitted. He also gives his take on NEFB endorsed candidates.
With Primary Election Day nearing, Nebraska Farm Bureau has put together an election guide for members; farmers and ranchers are encouraged to write the Securities and Exchange Commission and tell them to stop their invasive regulatory overreach; and a Ukrainian farmer is set to meet with agriculture stakeholders in Nebraska to talk about the war in Ukraine and its effects on global food security. Get all the details in Policy Watch.
