New England Farmers Union will send three delegates to the convention. Any one is welcome to attend, and members receive a discount on registration.

Vilsack and Clark will address some of the most challenging issues facing agriculture today, providing farmers and ranchers with the information and resources they need to be well-informed producers and influential advocates for the industry.

The four-day meeting will bring together NFU members, industry professionals, and friends of agriculture for a series of educational breakout sessions, two industry tours, and the organization’s unique, grassroots policy adoption process.

The most up-to-date convention information, including a tentative agenda and hotel information, can be found on the NFU website at www.nfu.org/convention.
