As a farmer-owned cooperative, Land O'Lakes, Inc. Government Relations plays a key role in supporting the food and agriculture industry that thrives in rural communities.
Part of the work is helping its members and local farmers advocate on their behalf, tell their stories to lawmakers and drive policy change that benefits consumers. It's about increasing access to food, understanding where it comes from, and bridging the gap between the farm and the grocery store.
Guests in this episode are Gretchen Rockstad, a Minnesota Farmer and a member of the Land O'Lakes, Inc. Policy & Resolutions Committee. And, Amber Horn-Leiterman, Land O'Lakes farmer-member from rural Wisconsin.
