“The farm bill plays a critical role in providing a safety net for America’s farmers and ranchers and has included important biofuel provisions in the past that we want to maintain,” said ACE Executive Vice President Brian Jennings.

In addition to Sen. Johnson and Jennings, participants who attended the event last Tuesday included Craig Schaunaman, USDA Farm Service Agency; Scott VanderWal, South Dakota Farm Bureau; Gary Duffy, South Dakota Corn Growers Association; Jeremy Freking, South Dakota Soybean Association; Kevin Kephart, South Dakota State University; Paul Brandt, South Dakota Pork Producers Council and Doug Sombke, South Dakota Farmers Union.
