MFU members return from National Farmers Union Convention

Tom Schulz, Sebeka was a delegate at the National Farmers Union Convention.

Minnesota Farmers Union members return from the annual National Farmers Union Convention held in Rapid City, S.D. Policy was set, special orders were passed, awards were given and speakers spoke about the status of the agriculture community and where it is heading.

"The National Convention is a place where all the state Farmers Union organizations come together to work on policy that puts farmers first," said Doug Peterson, MFU president. "Now that the convention is over, we can take that policy and let our elected federal officials know where National Farmers Union stands on the issues important to farmers."

Minnesota had seven delegates to the National Convention and they were: Eunice Biel of Harmony; Sam Holmgren of Atwater; Larry Jacobson of Hitterdal; Bessie Klose of Atwater; Tom Schulz of Sebeka; Jim Stone of Canby; and Doug Peterson, MFU President of Madison.
