NMPF Joins Alliance to Promote Agriculture

February 4, 2011

As part of an effort to fund programs that will bolster the image of agriculture and enhance public trust in the U.S. food supply, NMPF has joined more than 20 other farmer- and rancher-led organizations to become part of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA). Together these organizations represent nearly all aspects of agriculture. NMPF’s Chris Galen was elected to serve on the Board of Directors of the Alliance.

Founded in October of last year, the USFRA aims to enhance consumer trust in the U.S. food production system, maintain and enhance the freedom of U.S. farmers and ranchers to operate in a responsible manner, and strengthen collaboration. The members of USFRA plan to work together to augment U.S. consumer trust in modern food production to ensure the abundance of affordable, safe food.
