St. Paul (March 22, 2010) - Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU) members return from the annual National Farmers Union (NFU) Convention held in Rapid City, South Dakota. Policy was set, Special Orders were passed, awards were given and speakers spoke about the status of the agriculture community and where it is heading. NFU President Roger Johnson, and NFU Vice President Claudia Svarstad were re-elected to their positions.
"The National Convention is a place where all the state Farmers Union organizations come together to work on policy that puts farmers first," said Doug Peterson, MFU President. "Now that the convention is over, we can take that policy and let our elected federal officials know where National Farmers Union stands on the issues important to farmers."
