Stand Strong Together

In my remarks to the opening plenary of the Global Youth Ag Summit, I focused on the importance of farmers speaking up and speaking together. Now is the moment agriculture is at the forefront of the global agenda and the people at the summit have the chance to use their leadership skills to make sure that agriculture remains at the top of the agenda.

Art Froelich and I had a lot of fun doing this presentation and even more fun answering questions and meeting people afterward. Watch a video of the presentation, titled “Day 2 – Tuesday, August 20 Youth Ag Summit” here: Our session starts at 45:40, and I start at 54:30 in the timeline..
