Farmfest is known for numerous farm policy educational forums. This year’s line-up includes an ag outlook forum and a discussion about the 2023 Farm Bill. MinnStar Bank Senior Vice President Kent Thiesse, the educational forum coordinator for Farmfest, has more details. “The next farm bill is starting to get attention in Congress. What a panel we’ve put together for this discussion. We have American Farm Bureau Federation Vice President Scott VanderWal and National Farmers Union President Rob Larew. There’s also National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Don Schiefelbein and National Pork Producers Council President Terry Wolters.” It’s also an election year. A few of the education sessions take a closer look at the candidates. There are two Minnesota congressional candidate forums on Tuesday. There is a governor candidate forum on Wednesday. These candidate forums will also be live-streamed. Follow RRFN’s Farmfest coverage starting on Tuesday.
