Members of the House of Representatives recently left Washington, D.C., for the annual August congressional recess and the Senate will soon follow suit. Tom Donnelly, director of grassroots program development at AFBF, explained in Newsline why now is the perfect time for Farm Bureau members to advocate for agriculture.
 
“We hope that farmers and ranchers will take advantage of this time to schedule meetings with lawmakers, share their stories about issues and challenges they face, but also build that relationship and become a trusted source for the lawmaker on agriculture,” Donnelly said. “The real impact of advocacy comes from personal stories that illustrate how key issues are affecting farmers and ranchers.”
