Minnesota Farm Bureau has set legislative priorities for 2023.
Vice president Carolyn Olson, who farms near Cottonwood, tells Brownfield rural broadband connectivity, supporting research and development at land grant universities, and funding the veterinary diagnostic lab emerged during grassroots discussion.
“To continue research for prevention of animal diseases. As a pig farmer, that is something that is pretty important to me and our neighbors that also raise livestock.”
On broadband, she says Farm Bureau can encourage lawmakers to speed up implementation by sharing their stories.
