wavesNew England is hosting the 111th Anniversary National Farmers Union Convention March 2-5, 2013, at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Mass. Producers from across the country will gather to set the policy priorities for 2013. Please join us so that New England’s voice can be heard!
The National Farmers Union (NFU) has demonstrated its support of New England producers through its advocacy for farm bill programs that reward conservation, beginning farmers, organic production, dairy reform, and more. Let’s welcome NFU to our great region, and keep the interests of New England’s producers at the forefront of the national agricultural policy agenda.
The conference theme is Making Waves In Agriculture. USDA Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan, who hails from western Massachusetts, will deliver the keynote address. Panels will tackle international agriculture, conservation compliance, farm safety, women in agriculture and scaling up to meet demand. Check out the agenda.
With your participation, New England will indeed make waves in agriculture this year. Please register so we know you’re coming!
