WASHINGTON – The Arkansas Farm Bureau honored U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) for his commitment to Arkansas’s agriculture industry with its ‘Friend of the Farm Bureau’ award.
“Agriculture is an economic engine of our state. As a member of the Senate’s Agriculture Committee, I’m committed to being a voice for ranchers and farmers to craft and pass the best policies that provide our producers with the safety net and certainty they need to continue supplying our country with the safest, most abundant food supply in the world. I’m honored to receive this recognition and look forward to continuing to work with Arkansas Farm Bureau members to help me make the best policy decisions for our state’s agriculture producers,” Boozman said.
Boozman has been a constant champion for Arkansas agriculture. He was a voice for Arkansas producers as a member of the conference committee tasked with resolving differences between the Senate and House versions of the Farm Bill.
"Senator Boozman has been a long time friend to Arkansas' farmers and ranchers. He's carried our water time and again throughout his time in the House and now in the Senate. The Senator's work on the Farm Bill in the Senate Committee on Agriculture was invaluable. We appreciate Senator Boozman and look forward to his continuing service," Arkansas Farm Bureau President Randy Veach said.
The “Friend of Farm Bureau” award is given to members who demonstrate their support for issues important to the Farm Bureau.
