PHOTOS: Young Holds Farmer Roundtable in Allen County

HARLAN, Ind. Today, U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) held a roundtable discussion with the Indiana Farm Bureau at Roemke Farms in Allen County.

Senator Young was joined by Roemke Farms owner, Mark Roemke, and members of the Indiana Farm Bureau for a roundtable discussion on the extreme challenges Indiana farmers faced this spring as well as the steps Senator Young has taken to ensure Hoosier farmers receive clarity and access to the right federal tools to assist in these tough times.  Senator Young also heard from local farmers about their creative conservation practices and the need to pass USMCA.

“As the 10th largest farming state in the country, Indiana relies heavily on agriculture. This year, adverse weather conditions have significantly impacted Hoosier farmers. That’s why I’m fighting to ensure our agriculture industry, and Hoosier farmers like Mark Roemke, receive the clarity they need from the federal government, ” said Senator Young. “As we look to harvest, I stand ready to support Indiana’s farmers however I can.”
