Berry Receives Top Award for His Agriculture Leadership

Last night I was honored to receive the Golden Triangle Award from Tom Buis, President of the National Farmer's Union (NFU). The Golden Triangle Award is NFU's highest award for government service, honoring members of Congress who have demonstrated outstanding leadership on issues affecting family farmers, ranchers and rural communities.

Recipients were chosen for their leadership on a variety of issues, including support for emergency disaster assistance for producers that have suffered from devastating weather circumstances, the promotion and production of fuels from the farm, and need to develop fair agriculture trade agreements.
