Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.

On the more than 80,000 farms across our state, Minnesota farmers worked around the clock to bring in a successful harvest. Going from the wet spring that delayed planting, the dry summer that stressed crops, and the wet October that hampered the harvest, this year has not dealt them a perfect hand, but our farmers don’t make excuses. They just roll up their sleeves and get the job done.
