Representing the 6th District of Minnesota

Agriculture

Agriculture is the backbone of the American economy. Nowhere is that more evident than right here in the state of Minnesota. As the nation’s top producer of turkey, sugar beets, oats, sweet corn, and green peas, and a leader in soybean and corn production, Minnesota is recognized as an agricultural leader throughout the world.

Congress plays a significant role in the modernization of American farming by actively engaging in the creation of sound agriculture and land stewardship policies. I will work to promote this vital industry and ensure that our farmers have the resources they need for effective and safe production of America’s food supply.
