Legislative Update (7-22-16)

Friday, July 22, 2016

Dear Neighbors,

Last week, the University of Minnesota named this year’s recipients of the “Farm Family of the Year” awards. Eighty of Minnesota’s eighty-seven counties had farmers and their families that were recognized for their contributions to agriculture and their community. Here are the local farms that were recognized in our area:
  • Robert and Kim Goerger of Lac Qui Parle County
  • Gary and Nancy Crowley of Lyon County
  • Thomas and DaVonna Zeug of Redwood County
  • Stelter Family Farm from Yellow Medicine County
Congratulations to all of this year’s recipients and thanks for everything you do to strengthen and feed our communities across Minnesota!

I can be reached by phone at 651-296-5374 or via email at
