For the final Thursday in January, this Thursday's Afternoon Ag Segment is all about politics. Tune in as ag broadcaster Sonja Langseth catches up with Joe Martin, Executive Director of the Minnesota State Cattlemen's Association as they talk recent law changes, policy items and farm bill worries as we look into 2013. To stay up to date on all the latest with the MSCA, visit their website at mnsca.org.
Then Langseth turns to Minnesota Farmer's Union President Doug Peterson to recap MFU's Day at the Capitol. They discuss a variety of issues MFU as the organization sets its priorities for the 2013 legislative session. They discuss supporting local foods, finding common sense solutions to taxes, promoting the creation of an Agriculture Water Quality Certification Program, and the hopes to continue a second Minnesota wolf hunting/trapping season.
