With issues like immigration reform and the pending farm bill on their minds, Texas farmers and ranchers traveled to Washington, D.C., to meet with their U.S. senators and representatives.

More than 150 state and county Farm Bureau leaders, led by Texas Farm Bureau President Kenneth Dierschke, reconnected with their nationally elected officials April 8-11, during the Texas Farm Bureau National Affairs Awards Trip. Edmond and Kim Pruski attended from the Wilson County Farm Bureau.

“It is very important that we have an ongoing conversation with our national leaders to explain what we need to survive and preserve jobs,” Edmond Pruski said. “We are running out of time to develop a farm bill safety net, so we reminded them that the farm bill is a safety net that ensures we can continue to grow food and fiber for all Americans and grow it in America.”

In addition to the farm bill, Texas Farm Bureau members discussed immigration reform. With a serious shortage of agricultural labor, Texas farmers are looking to the immigration reform bill for relief. This legislation would provide a legal guest worker program.
