NEW ORLEANS – The Montana Farm Bureau has received the Pinnacle Award for Program and Membership Achievement during American Farm Bureau 100th Annual Convention Jan. 11-16 in New Orleans. The Pinnacle Award is the highest honor a state can be awarded for outstanding programs and membership achievement in 2018. Montana Farm Bureau President Hans McPherson accepted the award during the opening session.
Congressman Collin Peterson voted to second time as Chairman of the House Committee on Agriculture.
Last week, multiple news outlets began sharing stories that stated the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) had made the ELD exemption for livestock and insect transporters, permanent. This information is NOT true.
Recently, some Montana ranchers traveled to Reno, Nevada to attend the 7th National Grazing Lands Coalition Conference (NGLCC). The event gave ranchers and researchers the opportunity to share and gain knowledge to improve the environment and their family businesses.
Formerly the Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative or GLCI, the National Grazing Lands Coalition was founded to provide high-quality technical assistance on privately owned grazing lands on a voluntary basis and to increase the awareness of the importance of grazing land resources.
We always hear about the basis but how can you use it to make marketing decisions?
