Minnesota Farmers Union members at National Farmers Union Convention in San Antonio, Texas

Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU) members attended the National Farmers Union (NFU) Convention in San Antonio, Texas March 13-15.

"The National Farmers Union Convention is important because it is a great display of grassroots policy-making," said Doug Peterson, Minnesota Farmers Union president. "All the Farmers Union states get together and push for policies their states deem important to get in the National Farmers Union policy. It is farmer-made and farmer-led policy-making at its finest."

Other MFU members attending included Marvin and Marlys Jensen of Kensington.

Minnesota Farmers Union, www.mfu.org, is a nonprofit membership-based organization working to protect and enhance the economic interests and quality of life of family farmers and ranchers, as well as rural communities.
