Be a Force for American Agriculture
One of the core resources that make our country great is the ability to produce our own food and fuel. Yet every year, thousands of family farmers are pushed off their land due to new taxes, regulations and legislative pressures.
Anti-ag activists are damaging – if not destroying – American agriculture. How do you stop them from putting obstacles in your way? How do you keep Capitol Hill from impacting the income you use to support your family?
