Today, we're wrapping up one of the biggest weeks for ag policy announcements in a long time, AND crazy weather is moving across the Great Plains with rain, sleet, white-out conditions, and possibly tornadoes as the system moves east. Plenty to talk about on this Friday the 13th.
We have some other cool news! Ag News Daily is excited to announce our first field reporter, Bruce Gaarder! Bruce has covered ag issues for a long time, and yesterday he had the chance to attend the Nebraska Ethanol Emerging Issues summit and speak with several folks about the state of the industry and the future of the RFS.
Also yesterday afternoon, Rep. Mike Conaway participated in a telephone town hall answering questions about the just-released Farm Bill text - on today's episode we'll play his introductory remarks and comments on SNAP, but tune in tomorrow for the full phone call with questions from ag journalists across the country.
Have a great weekend and stay safe, everybody!
