ND Rural Farmers Meeting

Posted: Updated:

800 members gathered in Minot today representing the 40,000 across the state, to conduct business, receive financial statements, and elect new leaders for 2014 - the 88th year of North Dakota Farmers Union.

The goal of the Farmers Union is to advocate for family farmers and ranchers, on issues like farm bills and infrastructure needs.

Speakers today included senator John Hoeven who spoke about his ideas for next years farm bills, and this years president says the most important part of this weekend, is getting everyone up to date, on just that.

(Woody Barth, President of ND Farmers Union) "Talking about getting a farm bill completed. We want that certainty for our producers, for our membership; as we come into the 2014 growing season, making sure that they know what their farm bill is going to look like."

Tonight is the last night of the 2-day Farmers Union Meeting at the Holiday Inn Riverside.
