Growing animal agriculture in North Dakota is a priority for all three guests on this first episode of the legislative season of Straight Talk with NDFB. Learn why as your host, Emmery Mehlhoff visits with NDFB and agriculture legislative leadership.

In this first episode of the sixth season, Emmery talks with NDFB Public Policy Director Pete Hanebutt about the priority issues the organization will work on during the session.

She also visits with new House and Senate Agriculture Committee chairs, Rep. Paul Thomas and Senator Larry Luick.

According to both Rep. Thomas and Sen. Luick, animal agriculture has a number of opportunities to capture growth markets in the state if lawmakers can initiate changes to make the climate more inviting for entrepreneurs. Learn more about what each of them hopes to accomplish in this session.
