Terry Detrick and AFR Delegation Winding Down Time in Washington

Wed, 14 Sep 2011 10:04:38 CDT

Terry Detrick and AFR Delegation Winding Down Time in Washington A delegation of leaders from American Farmers & Ranchers have been in Washington this week- led by their President Terry Detrick. The AFR delegation has been participating in both the fall National Farmers Union Fly-in as well as the Oklahoma State Chamber of Commerce Fly-in.


We talked on Wednesday morning with Detrick about the week's highlights, including the release by the NFU of a farm bill proposal developed for the general farm organization by Dr. Daryll Ray of the Univesrity of Tennessee- and a former Ag Economics Professor on staff at Oklahoma State University. Detrick calls the concepts in the measure interesting and is asking Bart Fischer, Chief Economist on the staff of House Ag Committee Chairman Frank Lucas to review the proposal, as well as the Ag Econmics Department at OSU and State Farm Service Director Francie Tolle.


For more on the NFU Farm bill proposal, including a downloadable copy of the full plan, click here.
