Suits & Shovels | The US Rice Industry Hits Capitol Hill!


Let’s make farming great again! This week I joined the USA Rice Federation and the California Rice Commission in Washington DC to speak with members of congress and senators about the US rice industry.

Talking points included trade, wildlife and habitat conservation as well as the Farm Bill. I had an excellent time with my fellow rice industry members and I learned a lot about USA agriculture and farming in California through the eyes of the government.

Now that I’m back in California I’m going to continue draining our rice fields of winter water.

Here’s the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats Farmer video.
