FRANKLIN, IN – Johnson County farmers recently met with Representative Trey Hollingsworth (IN-09) at a roundtable to discuss issues facing Indiana agriculture operations, trade, immigration, and the 2018 Farm Bill.
“Whether their specialty is corn, soybeans, cattle, or dairy, what our Hoosier farmers need from Congress is certainty – now and into the future,” said Rep. Hollingsworth. “I appreciated hearing from our farmers how they believe Congress can help stabilize and sustain a strong agricultural economy for generations to come.”
In addition to addressing policy, farmers present highlighted that to sustain family farms that have been in Indiana for generations, we should be encouraging future generations of Hoosiers to be excited by and interested in farming and where their food comes from.
Rep. Hollingsworth’s roundtable was a part of his continuous efforts to meet face-to-face with as many Hoosiers in Indiana’s Ninth Congressional District as possible to listen to ideas, address concerns, and take ideas back to Washington. For the Indiana farming community, this includes previous agriculture townhalls in Washington, Harrison, Johnson, Jackson, Clark, and Monroe counties.
