Sen. Boozman Honored with Farm Bureau Golden Plow Award

Fri, 22 Jul 2022 14:23:44 CDT

Sen. Boozman Honored with Farm Bureau Golden Plow Award The American Farm Bureau Federation and Arkansas Farm Bureau today presented Sen. John Boozman (R-Ark.) with AFBF’s Golden Plow award. The Golden Plow is the highest honor the organization gives to sitting members of Congress.
“For two decades, Senator Boozman has demonstrated his commitment to agriculture and farmers across the country,” said AFBF President Zippy Duvall. “His unwavering support for hardworking farm families has earned him the Friend of Farm Bureau award for 10 consecutive sessions, so presenting him with the Golden Plow award seems only natural.”
The Arkansas Farm Bureau nominated Boozman for the award in honor of his work advocating to end hunger, helping to secure emergency assistance for farmers and his work on the 2018 farm bill.
“Senator Boozman knows the key to good policy is consensus,” Duvall said. “He’s willing to work with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to meet the needs of farmers and ranchers while ensuring America’s families continue to enjoy a stable food supply.”
Arkansas Farm Bureau President Rich Hillman said, “Sen. Boozman is a great listener, which is very important when representing others. Listening and understanding the concerns of others is one of his most meaningful attributes. He stands for what he believes in, puts aside the small stuff and works for the common good. He has always represented Arkansas’ farmers and ranchers with tenacity and the highest integrity.”
AFBF’s Golden Plow award recognizes members of Congress who exemplify agricultural leadership and support of Farm Bureau policies. Recipients are chosen for having a philosophy or record that demonstrates a commitment to sound agricultural policies supported by Farm Bureau, the private enterprise system, fiscal conservatism and reduced federal regulation of businesses and individuals.
