May 2016 Monthly Briefing

A “Historic” Day for the Family Farm Alliance

Reps Testify Before Three Congressional Hearings….in One Day

The Family Farm Alliance accomplished a rare feat earlier this month, when association representatives testified on three water-related policy matters before three separate congressional committees on Capitol Hill- in one day.

“This is definitely a first for our organization,” said Family Farm Alliance President Patrick O’Toole, a cattle and sheep rancher from Wyoming (pictured above, left). “Our presence is a testament to the command the Family Farm Alliance has of the relevant issues facing agriculture in the West.”
