Dr. Boozman's Check-up

Ag Tour in the News

Sep 03 2013

Last week we visited 15 counties throughout the state for our annual Agriculture Tour. We talked with family farmers, facility managers, agriculture researchers and others who make their living growing, processing, and securing our supply of food and fiber. Agriculture is Arkansas’s top industry we want to make sure the policies Congress is crafting will improve productivity for our agribusinesses. This is especially important as we face the September 30, 2013 expiration of the Farm Bill, which is the legislation that dictates our nation’s agriculture policy. I wanted to share some of the stories about our visits during the tour.
