Farmers and Ranchers Alliance Taking Shape

Tue, 12 Oct 2010 16:28:31 CDT

More than 60 representatives from more than 20 national food and agricultural organizations have agreed to incorporate a U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance to focus on working together to enhance U.S. consumer trust in modern food production that ensures the abundance of affordable, safe food. National Corn Growers Association CEO Rick Tolman serves as chair of the USFRA Steering Committee.

After Tuesday’s organizational meeting, Tolman said this represents - a start toward a unified voice for U.S. agriculture. He added, - while the results of today’s organizational meeting represent the culmination of six months of planning, it is only the beginning of a process designed to create a coordinated effort by and on behalf of U.S. farmers and ranchers. USFRA plans to incorporate this week.

Several participants have already stepped forward to officially join the Alliance. Others need to return to their boards to determine whether they will join. Organizations have been asked to respond about affiliation no later than November 1. After that date, a board of directors will be established and will elect an executive committee.
