Former Military Leaders Discuss AG/National Security Connection

Posted July 25, 2016 at 5:00am

The High Plains/Midwest AG Journal reports that “the House Agriculture Committee held a hearing July 7 to examine the on-the-ground experiences of former military leaders and the connection between agricultural policy and national security.”  

“This is the fifth hearing in the committee’s hearing series focused on national security.”  

“Members heard from a panel of former military leaders who described how the United States’ investment in transportation and infrastructure, agricultural research and innovation, and risk management tools for farmers has led to a vibrant and stable agricultural industry in the U.S., which is inexplicably linked to national security.”
