Spreading the message about the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) during the recent Commodity Classic was the task at hand for Lisa Lunz, a corn and soybean farmer from Wakefield, Nebraska. Lunz is on the Nebraska Soybean Board and a director on the USFRA.
Lunz tells Brownfield that because agriculture has not had a voice, many consumers are confused. Consumer education, having conversations with consumers and answering their questions is something every farmer can do.
