U.S. FARMERS AND RANCHERS ALLIANCE FORMED
Source: U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance news release

More than 60 representatives from more than 20 national food and agricultural organizations today agreed to incorporate a U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) to focus on working together to enhance U.S. consumer trust in modern food production that ensures the abundance of affordable, safe food.

"Today represents a start toward a unified voice for U.S. agriculture," said Rick Tolman, CEO of the National Corn Growers Association and chair of the USFRA Steering Committee. "While the results of today's organizational meeting represent the culmination of six months of planning, it is only the beginning of a process designed to create a coordinated effort by and on behalf of U.S. farmers and ranchers. Several participants have stepped forward to officially join the Alliance. Others need to return to their boards to determine whether they will join."

USFRA plans to incorporate this week. Organizations have been asked to respond about affiliation no later than November 1. After that date, a board of directors will be established and will elect an executive committee.
Members of the USFRA Board, its executive committee and its affiliated organizations will be announced formally in mid-November.
