Commodity organizations in Minnesota are asking political candidates to respond to a questionnaire so the public can see where they stand on important agricultural issues.
Minnesota Pork executive director David Preisler assisted in crafting the survey and says representatives from the corn, soybean, beef, poultry and dairy sectors contributed.
“Let’s look at this as a big tent approach. So let’s support all good farms: large or small, conventional (and) organic. We’ve got a real diverse agriculture here in Minnesota and we just think folks should be open-minded and support all good farms.”
