Ag Groups Respond to Presidential Election Results

Farm groups congratulate President-elect Joe Biden on his called victory while seeking to shape the roadmap for the future. 

American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall says, “President-elect Biden will be presented with opportunities to improve the lives of rural Americans and this nation’s farmers and ranchers.” 

For agriculture, AFBF says the priorities include expanding trade and market access, rural broadband, addressing the farm labor shortage and strengthening the farm bill. 

National Farmers Union President Rob Larew says, “The last four years haven’t been too kind to family farmers and ranchers.” Larew adds, “We stand ready to work with his administration to ensure that its policies and programs adequately represent the interests of family farmers and rural communities.” 

In congratulating the incoming administration, Growth Energy says biofuels are the most affordable and effective solution available now to take climate action, adding “the new administration must harness those environmental and economic benefits by strengthening the Renewable Fuel Standard.”
