Farm Bureau chief gets input in D.C.
Arkansas Farm Bureau President Randy Veach was on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, visiting with lawmakers and hearing from members of the Trump administration.
While in town, he also attended a gathering of the American Farm Bureau Federation’s Council of Presidents. State presidents heard from Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, the organization said.
In a video posted Tuesday on the Arkansas Farm Bureau’s Facebook page, Veach said his meetings with members of the Arkansas congressional delegation had been positive.
“They’re very supportive of agriculture,” he said. “They’re out here working for us, and that makes a big difference for our farmers and ranchers in the state.”
Topics included forestry, trade policy and the coming farm bill.
Veach, a Mississippi County resident, is a third-generation farmer.
