LARNED — Pawnee County Farmers Union will hold its annual meeting on Monday, Nov. 28 at 10:30 a.m. in the Pawnee County Courthouse lounge.
This is an open meeting where all who are interested in farm issues and rural life are welcome. So, you do not need to be a member of Farmers Union, or a farmer, or residing in Pawnee County to attend.
Participants will have the opportunity to visit with top leadership of Farmers Union at the state and national level. Donn Teske, who is president of Kansas Farmers Union and also vice president of National Farmers Union, will speak on “The Puzzle of the Next Farm Bill.” It is a timely issue because the next farm bill and related possibilities posed by a new administration are already being discussed throughout our nation.
All are also invited to the Kansas Farmers Union annual convention Dec. 7-8 in Wichita.
The theme is “Helping Communities Help Themselves.” Participants will have the opportunity to attend presentations on opportunities, concerns and strategies for effectively responding to agricultural issues in Kansas and nationwide. Convention details are on the Kansas Farmers Union website.
Kansas Farmers Union is Kansas’ oldest active general farm organization representing family farms. As such, it continually works to protect and enhance the economic interests and quality of life for all family farmers, ranchers and rural communities throughout Kansas.
