Vilsack Meeting

(click to enlarge)

There will be a meeting in Modesto with Secretary of Agriculture Vilsack on August 26, 2009.


  1. Umm are you sure? Modesto is in CA... I'm from MO and would go if it was here but there isn't any Modesto MO :)

  2. I guess it was too late when I originally posted the meeting. Thanks for the correction.

  3. When California Dairy Dudes get together, at least they organize something in the way of a lunch - $17.50 a head according to the flier you posted.But,Vilsack'll no doubt lay some of that "U.S. ag is incredibly prosperous" B.S.on them, too...
    Far cry from the poor Ohio souls that'll have to "brown bag it" listening to you and Kurt lay all that negative facts'n figures stuff on them...guess that's just the price paid to listen to honest men... later, Nate Wilson

  4. Vilsack promises to uphold fair practices? He should probably talk to the Hispanic Farmers who are suing the USDA for discriminatory practices against them.

    The Black farmers filed a class action suit and won billions of dollars... why do hispanic farmers, who suffered the same injustice, get nothing. That doesn't seem fair, does it?
