Rep. Hagedorn will hold a roundtable discussion with farmers and producers in Mankato.

On Saturday, March 7, Congressman Jim Hagedorn (MN-01), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs Greg Ibach, and Minnesota Pork Producers Association (MN Pork) CEO David Preisler will host a roundtable discussion with farmers and producers at the MN Pork headquarters in Mankato.

One of Rep. Hagedorn’s top agriculture priorities is to make sure our federal agencies are equipped with the necessary tools to combat Foreign Ag Diseases (FAD), such as African Swine Fever (ASF), High Path Avian Influenza (HPAI) and Foot-Mouth Disease (FMD), and this forum will provide an opportunity for members of southern Minnesota’s agriculture community to discuss the issues impacting their daily lives.

The roundtable will also focus on trade policy, plant health issues, FDA issues and a general update from Washington.

It goes from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the MN Pork Headquarters, 151 Saint Andrews Court, Suite 810, Mankato.
