Recently, National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) president Wayne Hurst, a wheat farmer from Burley, Idaho, traveled to Washington to meet with USDA and Environmental Protection Agency officials to continue building bridges between the two agencies and the agricultural community.

While in town, Hurst and NAWG staff members also held meetings on Capitol Hill, primarily focusing on the likely trajectory of the 2012 farm bill process. In those meetings, Hurst described NAWG’s policymaking process and expressed wheat farmers’ desire to balance serious deficit reduction efforts with the crafting of a workable safety net for agriculture.
