WASHINGTON—Yesterday, U.S.Rep. John Rose (TN-6) virtually attended the 2021 Ag Industry Partner Meeting in Lebanon with agricultural leaders from across the state. This yearly event is hosted by the Tennessee Farm Bureau and is the largest gathering of Tennessee Agriculture leaders in one location.
“It was a privilege to participate in this important discussion surrounding both Tennessee and American agriculture. As a farmer myself, I understand the issues that many in the agriculture industry face, but it is critical to hear the challenges directly affecting our farming communities as their insight is vital to my work in Washington. Our entire country has a stake in the success of the agriculture community, and I will continue to push for our Tennessee farmers to get the resources they need,” Rose.
“We find it critically important to gather leaders from across the various parts of the agriculture and forestry sector in order to discuss and identify common priorities so we can collectively move forward with a united voice,” said Tennessee Farm Bureau President Jeff Aiken. “We thank Congressman Rose for playing a key role in the event by sharing an update on national issues affecting our most important industry and appreciate his commitment to rural Tennessee.”
