National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson spoke at the North Dakota Farmers Union Convention this weekend in Bismarck. This was Johnson’s first visit to his home state since announcing he would not seek re-election. Johnson said he is proud of his time in Washington, D.C. with Farmers Union. “There are a lot of agricultural interests represented out there. Most of them represent commodities more than individuals. Others represent the agriculture industry and not the family farmer. Farmers Union is a very grassroots organization and our first obligation is to our farmers.” Johnson says NFU is in a stronger place today than when he took over the leadership role in 2009.
