RRFN affiliate KKCQ in Fosston hosted their annual Farm Forum Saturday, with updates from state lawmakers. The Vice-Chair of the Minnesota Senate Agriculture, Rural Development and Housing Finance Committee Mark Johnson said the nitrogen fertilizer rule is still in the back of lawmakers’ minds. “I think this year with a new administration, we’ll be able to do some tweaking on the rule,” he said. “It goes into effect at the end of the session. It’s something we’re going to be having some discussions on going forward.” Representatives Steve Green and Deb Kiel also updated the 30 farmers and ranchers at the forum. Wolf depredation, buffers, tax conformity and managing farm stress are expected to get attention during the session.
