The National Farmers Union will host 350 members in Washington D.C. for their 2018 Fall Legislative Fly-In this week. During their time in the capitol city, farmers and ranchers from around the country will meet with Trump administration officials and members of Congress on current issues. North Dakota Farmers Union Legislative Supervisor Kayla Pulvermacher says the farm bill, trade and ethanol continue to be top-of-mind. “With the trade war, storage is becoming a huge issue in terms of where are we going to put these soybeans with such a plentiful crop.” The Red River Farm Network will have boots on the ground in Washington D.C. with reports from the fly-in. The North Dakota Farmers Union is sponsoring that coverage.
