There’s more to agriculture than the food we eat. The resiliency and innovation of America’s farmers and ranchers is unmatched. They’re the backbone of our economy and key to sustained economic strength.
Agriculture is leading the way to American energy independence, producing renewable, home-grown renewable fuels. Agriculture is conserving our natural resources through voluntary conservation practices that protect our land and streams. Agriculture is a driving force in adopting new technology to boost productivity.
Agriculture is a way of life. The values and strong work ethic agriculture instills in the next generation will serve us for years to come.
– Rep. Collin Peterson, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Agriculture
