September 20, 2019 10:10am

Buena Vista County Farm Bureau member Kris Ehlers of Albert City was among 27 Iowa Farm Bureau leaders who spent September 10th through the 13th in Washington DC to meet with Iowa's Congressional delegation during the annual Ag Leaders Institute Policy Trip to discuss key farm issues impacting communities across Iowa.

The Farm Bureau members urged Iowa's elected officials to approve the United States-Mexico-Canada agreement...and end the abuse of waivers allowing refiners to sidestep ethanol blend requirements, sharing how critical those two issues are for Iowa agriculture.

The Ag Leaders Institute is a year-long program offered to select Farm Bureau members around the state. The program provides cutting-edge information about agricultural issues, while developing individual leadership skills, and working to create a network of leaders across Iowa.
