Presenting at American Farm Bureau Federation’s Annual Convention

Earlier this month, I got the opportunity to present with my friend Tiffany Lashmet (@TiffDowell) at the American Farm Bureau’s 99th Annual Convention at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville.  We covered an agricultural law overview for 2017 and what to be watching for in 2018.  As you can see from the one picture I remembered to take during the event, the event was well attended and the audience asking great questions.  After the jump, you will find the audio of the presentation provided by American Farm Bureau.

Tffany and I also provided a handout for the presentation and you can find it here.

While at the convention, I got the opportunity to listen to Keith Coble (@DrKeithHCoble) speak on Crop Markets and the upcoming Farm Bill and Kansas Senator Jerry Moran give his views on the upcoming Farm Bill debate.  In addition to presenting at the annual convention, I got the opportunity to explore the Gaylord Resort (maybe pretend to drive a Farmall tractor), visit the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium, and almost see Reba McEntire.  Take a look at the pictures below.
