Agriculture

Agriculture is not only a vital industry in our area, for many of us in southern Minnesota, it’s a way of life. It is imperative that we support our farmers against rising costs so they can be competitive in a global market. Family farms and surrounding rural areas are a critical part of our communities.

I will protect our farmers by:
  • Ensuring adequate safety nets for farmers, including crop insurance that fully covers unforeseen losses.
  • Helping young farmers enter agriculture as a career.
  • Investing in diverse farming, such as organic and sustainable crops, to meet demand.
  • Appropriating funds for rural development and infrastructure.
