Holly Porter, Deputy Principal Assistant for the Delaware Department of Agriculture, brought the LEADelaware Class IV to the NASDA offices for a lunch-and-learn to discuss the upcoming Farm Bill and share insights on a range of policy issues, including but not limited to: animal health, tax reform, weed resistance, conservation, Title I programs, nutrient management, and cultivating the next generation of Ag Leaders. We thank Holly and J.T. for their time and leadership, and we always appreciate the opportunity to visit with state leaders when they are in town!
