Panel on Food – No farmers or ranchers on it
New Farm Service Agency Administrator – of course he is not a farmer either
First the new FSA/USDA Administrator is a Lawyer with a bachelor degree in History.
This is not just a D problem in Washington the Rs did not have as many farmers and ranchers in positions at USDA as I would have had.
Last comment on administrator news release says he is a fifth generation Californian, how nice it would have been if he would have been a fifth generation Farmer.
New York Times is having a Food Conference (I guess making the news not reporting it). Whole bunch of “experts” but no actual commercial production agricultural producers.
I discuss these two items and others that always have me wondering “Where’s the farmer?”
