RURAL EVENT: Reps Angie Craig, Peterson, hold a Farm Hall

U.S. House Ag Committee Chair Collin Peterson and freshman Rep. and Ag Committee member Angie Craig held a Farm Hall event in a machine shed outside of Red Wing to discuss the implementation of the 2018 Farm Bill. The wide-ranging discussion included questions on dairy farming, farmers of color, guest workers and yes, the wall. See the captions on the photos for more on what was said.

It’s Minnesota’s largest and most rural district, includes most of the western area of the state, including Moorhead, Fergus Falls, Bemidji, Detroit Lakes, Thief River Falls, Willmar, Marshall, and Alexandria.
