As part of the “rural voices” discussion sponsored by the Minnesota Farmers Union, they also expressed concerns about the state issuing fines for farmers who are out of compliance with the buffer law, the need for good roads and broadband internet service, and regulations for chronic wasting disease in wild deer that could affect elk farmers.
The wide range of topics represented “powerful” concerns by farmers, said Bruce Miller, outreach director for the Farmers Union.
Miller promised the farmers that issues important to them will be included in a report to the Legislature. “We want them to know what our people are thinking,” he said.
