KAWG Supports Senator Pat Roberts

The Kansas Assn. of Wheat Growers released a statement Thursday, January 3, 2013,  in support of  Senator Pat Roberts:

“The Kansas Association of Wheat Growers is disappointed to learn that Senator Pat Roberts no longer holds the Ranking Minority status in the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry.

“Senator Pat Roberts is a tremendous friend and ally of Kansas wheat producers. We are fortunate to have someone of his wisdom, integrity and resiliency working on Kansans’ behalf.  We have been privileged to work with Sen. Roberts the past two years as we’ve worked to craft a new Farm Bill.

“Likewise, we will continue to work hand-in-hand with Sen. Roberts in the pursuit of sensible legislation that feeds, fuels and clothes the world while keeping a strong safety net for our farmers.”

David Schemm, KAWG president and Sharon Springs farmer

Senator Roberts was named the National Association of Wheat Growers Wheat Advocate in 2007, 2008 and 2011, and NAWG’s Wheat Leader of the Year in 1999.
