Farm Bureau makes stand at Capitol

By Oregon Farm Bureau,

Put them together and it’s a harrowing game of FarmCrush where Oregon farmers and ranchers are the big losers. Tell legislators not to play FarmCursh and help OFB explain the cumulative effect that more and more expensive regulations will have on Oregon agriculture.

See the Don’t Play #FarmCrush video – and share it online!
